Americans in Space display
Posted by CaptainJack on Tuesday, February 2, 2016 2:27 PM

Well, I got the Challenger Decals I was looking for for my 1:200 Hasegawa Shuttle with boosters off of Ebay in both 1:144 and 1:200. So....I'm starting to feel a little ambitious...

I already got the AMT Man in Space Rocket set in my stash and found a Hasegawa 1:200 Space Shuttle Orbiter w/ Payload on Ebay as well. Starting to think about doing an Americans in Space 1:200 display with the Saturn V (markings for Apollo 11), Saturn 1B, Mercury Redstone, Mercury Atlas, Gemini Titan II, Space Shuttle Challenger w/ Boosters and Space Shuttle Discovery or Columbia orbiter. Also thinking about scratchbuilding a launch gantry for the Saturn V and scratchbuilding a Liberty Bell 7 and putting a little Gus Grissom with it. I'd mount them all on a wood base and have some small engraved plaques made. 

Anybody know of 1:200 Apollo 11 LM-5 Eagle descent module or Lunar Rover out there somewhere? I'd like to add some other stuff to the display in the same scale. Any ideas would be very helpful.

Currently Working On - DeAgostini Millennium Falcon, 1/16 MPC General Lee, Moebius Bride of Frankenstein

1/200 is tough unless you find someone with the AMT set willing to give up the LEMS included with it.

I'd try Shapeways and maybe some one can reduce one of their LEM offerings down to 1/200. I've had luck with similar requests in the past.

This Shapeways vendor has a lot of space parts. Maybe he could do something with his LEMs.
