GLENCO LUNAR LANDER
Posted by PANZERJAGER on Wednesday, February 11, 2015 9:56 AM

Just a little something I built when I was down with pneumonia.

I added a base from the spares box and LED lighting.

Thanks, I have a lot of very odd space and sci-fi models in the stash.

Nice!

I love this kit and the other 50's scifi re-pops Glencoe came out with years ago. Fit and seam work can be a challenge but they are a blast from the past. Before these came out the originals were crazy expensive.

It was like a gift for those of us that are builders as opposed to collectors.

Ohhhh super cool! Fine tribute to the space program that never was.

Are those LEDs lighting the engine flames?

glad to have re-pops too, but I have many originals too.  I love to build them too, just to spite the collectors.

glad you like it, and yes those are LEDs  on the engines.

that was tough, I had to drill 2 parallel holes through eagh engine without breaking out or running into each other.  for all 5 engines!  Not for the faint of heart...

very nicely built, and might i add, that would probably be a hard ship to land, since it's tall and narrow, the slightest incline on the landing spot might make it topple over (a problem i have in KSP)

Nothing worse than making the flight all the way to Minmus, only to have the blasted lander fall over and strand your kerbalnauts!

I was referring to the price of the originals off of places like ebay before the Glencoe repops came out
