My current and most likely last customer build for awhile, I just don't have the free time and I want to finish my own projects. I did the artwork for the decals and Jim from JBOT printed them for me.

Nice! Not enough real space being done. I like the tape strips on the CM, I don't think I've seen it done that way. Just like on the real thing.
 
Thanks! It's bigger than a 5 gallon Home Depot bucket LOL. Doing the kapton tape is a supreme exercise in patience.
 
Don, was that one of the items Lorne was working on? He was talking about the project at dinner, one of the nights we basked in the glow of model greatness at Wonderfest. :cool
 
Lorne made the docking probe, latch and tunnel seen at the very tip.

I will never forget one thing that impresses me the most about the Apollos.

Every time I go to London, I spend at least half an hour looking at one of these capsules / pods in the Science Museum.

Awe, admiration and incredulity is what I feel, knowing people actually went into space / the moon and back in these things. My car probably has more sophisticated mechanics and electronics than them.

Amazing history of determination and courage.
