    'The Right Stuff' for the LEM Descent Stage . . .


    I hope you don´t mind me 'stealing' your thread a bit - your excellent 1:48 scale U-Don model really got me going . . .

    I have been checking this site for a good aluminium foil color for the U-Don LM model - it seems the 'orange' color is pretty good for the most of the foil covering. I am in the process of ordering a pack of these sheets now.

    Furthermore, if you check this picture (I have taken the liberty of inserting John Ortmann´s outstanding computer rendition from 2006 of the LM-5 Apollo 11 "The Eagle"), there are actually two foil colors, one dark orange-red 'copper-tone' color and one brighter 'gold' color on the landing gear legs and feet:


    So, I might just ask ekuth very nicely for a Hershey bar foil (or two) later on . . .

    All the best,
    Bengt :wave:

    Man oh man.. That is really quite cool. I wouldn't ever thought of that in a million years. The ultimate recycling.. I great bar of chocolate and a LEM protection shield in one package... I'm smiling such a wide smile right now..

    I'm going to making one of these too.. I'd like to make the Lunar Rover as well .. Trying to find a model of it but there aren't to many and non in card AFAIK.

    Great model as soon as I seen the thread I quickly went to U-DONS site to fetch this magnificent model
