I have decided to go to 3D printing. My first model is a 1/32 Apollo lunar module. I just completed the descent stage for LM-5. Parts are offered on Shapeways.

For the time being I am working on J missions modifications for the descent stage and then will start the ascent stage.

Very Cool!

It gets a "little" pricey by the time you get all of the parts.

That is true but you have also the possibility to buy parts along the construction project (which can be quite long with covering most of the parts individually). It is a way to spread the cost over time.

All times are CT (US)
