Wow.

When you say Shapeways, are you referring to Vincent Meens' model parts?

Really stunning. Well done.

Thank you all, here's a couple more pictures of the LRV in its quad. The pushrod assembly and saddle are not present.

Yes, this is Vincent Meen's designed model and a shout out to him for designing such a beautiful model.

I learned a lot with this build especially how much work went into removing the LRV once on the lunar surface and the brilliance it took to design this whole vehicle system.

As the proud client for this model I have to comment. Notice that there is a 12 inch ruler laying in front of the model in a couple of pictures. It measures 15.5 inches between opposing foot pads. It is big. A whole lot of work for Stephen on this one. He was a pleasure to work with. And very talented. It's the first LM to sport a rover hanging from quad #4.

Now everybody say a little prayer for it's journey from Pennsylvania to Texas.

Ron, I'm envious of this lander! I'm saving up to have Stephen build me a 1/32 scale and that one is expensive. No one can do better than Stephen!

First time (except on my computer) I see the LRV inside the LM descent stage. Very well done indeed.

The only comment I have, if I may, I would have modeled the ascent stage panels and descent stage kapton a bit more wrinkled with the kapton a bit more "detached" from the plastic part, like on this picture.

That is a stunning model.

Vincent done an incredible job designing it, and Steve, you truly are a master modeller.

Wow, this is a very detailed build. I was unaware of that rear leg stowage area on the LEM. The Rover I would like to see one all folded up on one of those white room frames. Great job

Wow, the clarity in these works of art surpass that of "precious moments," truly a labor of love. The value of the art world and its continuing mission is exemplified right here, may it boldly continue to go on.

Pascal and Fred, thank you. I would also like to thank Robert for all his hard work restoring my images lost to photobucket's changes with their accounts.

STS-135 docked with the ISS for the very last time. Intermountain ISS kit along with a Revell Shuttle with Warbird decals. This had a 3-month delay due to a broken right arm and rehab is worse than the break.

Sorry to hear about the broken arm, Steve. Glad you're mended now.

The model looks great! Did you consider removing the Science Power Platform from the top? As that planned component was never launched. (As I know you know, there are other issues with the InterMountain kit, such as the module configuration being incorrect, but the SPP is the most noticeable.)

Robert this belongs to a cS member who wanted it built as it came from Intermountain, yes it is not correct in the configuration built but I must obey the wishes of the owners.

Thanks all, I know the limitations of the kit but it is so much nicer than the Revell kit.
