    Hi to All:mrgreen:

    To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Apollo 11.

    I decided on a twist of the Apollo 11 mission patch:twisted:

    The Bald Eagle is taken from Canon's website,reduced in scale by 50% and I had to add a lower beak as it does not have one.
    The Olive branch is my own design drawn with Adobe Illustrator.
    I made the Moonscape from paper-mache using Ton Noteboom's plans for his Lunar Surveyor.
    Unfortunately UK newspapers contain a lot of colour photo's so I had to go over the moonscape with a grey car primer to hide the flecks of colour dotted all overwall1.
    I love the Apollo11 LM plaque so I decided to include that aswell.
    I printed it on to brushed aluminium inkjet paper.
    The base and walls are made from black 5mm foamboard.
