    Carl Hewlett(?) put out a detailed 1/32 scale Apollo Command Module kit in 2007. It was a free download but I can't find a source anywhere in the file, and I'm sure that it is kosher for me to share it without the author's permission. (It was a free download.)

    It is very detailed and not for the beginner or the faint-of-heart.

    Can anyone come up with the source?

    Here's the URL for Carl's (Surfduke) site: Port/

    He has some really nice models there, but no instructions. By and large, it's ok because the parts are fairly self-explanatory. The rear part where the SPS nozzle attaches can be a bear, but if you take it slowly, you'll figure it out.

    As for the Delta 7 Studios stuff, I can attest they offer some pretty good stuff. The CDs cost, but you get a lot for the money, the quality is excellent and the instructions are clear, expansive and well-illustrated.

    Here are photos of my build of Carl's CSM and D7S's Gemini VII models. On the CSM, I used a couple of different types of metallic paper. I built Apollo 7 (which saved me the hassle of building the docking probe and the High-Gain Antenna) and I was generally pleased with Carl's design.

    On Gemini VII, I added some 3D detail to the nose, capsule and rear modules, and used gold foils for the rear insulation.

    Oops. I read right over that part of your post. The Delta 7 Studios stuff comes on a CD, which you then print out as needed. So I'm not sure what to tell you....

    Office Depot or Office Max should be able to print up any file onto cardstock for a reasonable fee. Also, has lots of great downloads.
