I've gone thru the box of parts that I bought from the Topping warehouse that had a bunch of LEM models. I'm going to list these on eBay and I wanted to let the group know what will be listed.

It looks like I have everything including a few of the illusive S-Band Antenna everyone is probably missing. I haven't come up with the price list yet but I hope to have it up tonight.

The parts that are not original but are exact replacements are the Brass landing legs and the S-Band Antenna Mount.

I have a few of the original cast clear bases but I'm not sure if they were a late idea or ever made it to production, the bases I've seen are made of two pieces of acrylic. I can make those as well as one that has all the graphics including the unique Grumman and NASA logos.

Replica S-Band Antennae will be available for $50. They will be painted have the hole drilled out and are made out of a strong uniform material. I'm going to do something to mark the part on the backside so anyone with the knowledge about these parts will know its a replica part.

If you need parts please email me off the list or wait until its on eBay so you can get an idea of cost.
