I'm happy to announce that the first of my Grumman Lunar Module patches (as discussed in this thread) is now ready. Just in time to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the flight here is the embroidered patch for LM-8, better known as the Apollo 14 Lunar Module "Antares".

The patch is partially-embroidered on blue twill and measures 4 x 6 1/4".

If you want to buy one of these patches please go to my CrewPatches.com site. At the top right of the menu you'll find a new icon that leads to my new Replica Store page. This is where I will soon be offering my Gemini 7 Crew Souvenir patch replica and eventually the whole range of Grumman LM patches.

Note that I have decided to include worldwide delivery of this patch for free as an introductory offer. Also, please note that this patch won't be available from any other source, although I will be listing them on eBay at the same price shortly.

I too have just ordered two of the LM-8 patches. Please sign me up for two complete sets of these Grumman LM patches, plus the Gemini 7 Crew Souvenir patch, many thanks Chris.

I would like to wish you the very best of luck with this project, and hope you can sell all that you have had made up so far.

Happy New Year to everyone on collectSPACE!

Kevin.

Sales have been pretty healthy so far. My impression is that I should be able to go for the complete set.

I still need to sell a significant number of each release before I can finance the next in the series so a staggered release is necessary but at least now I can be pretty confident that it's going to work.

LM-12 is likely to be the next in the series, probably in a couple of weeks.

Chris, I do not see where to purchase the Gemini 7 patch or I would have ordered one of those also. It does not show in your Replica Store. Please advise on how to order one. Thanks.

The Gemini 7 patch was going to be my first replica and I had everything prepared for that but there were some last minute technical difficulties.

The final delivery is on its way now so hopefully any day soon I should be able to put them on sale.

A few people have contacted me to say that they haven't yet received the LM-8 patches they ordered early on.

For some reason a few of the first batch of orders I posted on December 30 seem to have got held up somewhere along the line and are only just arriving now.

In one case the LM-8 patch posted on Dec 30 was delivered yesterday, on the same day as an LM-12 that was posted 10 days later.

So, in case you're still waiting it sounds like the stagglers should be turning up this coming week.

I got both my LM-8 and LM-12 patches on Friday. I wasn't really concerned since I knew they were coming via airmail.

They are both awesome, I look forward to the others.

All times are CT (US)
