My first model diorama of this year: an Apollo 15 Bulova watch/diorama box. I am happy with the end result. This one is for to keep the two versions Bulova moon watches.

The LRV 3D printing files are from designer Vincent Meens and the astronaut is from Max Grüter.

(For earlier models, please see: Pascal Hecker's space models (2010-2021).)

My last model is done, this time a rare kit model kit of the Soviet Luna 16 moon probe.

This first robotic probe to land on the Moon and return a sample of lunar soil to Earth with 101 grams sample moon soil on mission duration 12 days in year 1970.

Scale 1:16 and kit from Soviet brand AMC. They stop now produce this kit related the war with Ukraine.

WOW, impressive! What are those extended poles/antennas for? Were they in that position during the EVA?

I believe not, but I try to show all elements of that time frame of the mission. The launch of the sub satellite was also not under the EVA.

My next real space diorama, theme 1/4 Apollo 15 astronaut Al Worden ready going out for an EVA walk to pick up film cassettes.

Hatch design from Smithsonian is fully printed in resin parts and PLA. Astronaut design is by Max Grüter and film cassette roll is design by Vincent Meens and hatch list and tv cam as well. And thanks to Ed Hengeveld for info over the tv cam.

This diorama can be placed flat on the dessior or upright in supports stands and can be hung on the wall. Still busy with a 1/2 version, but that come later.
