1/48 Revell Apollo 11 LEM - 2009 reissue

Postby Morris » Sun Oct 28, 2018 10:24 am

Dug this one out of the garage - after the moths cleared out, i began to get stuck into it - Almost complete the lander module - would have liked to added more wrinkles but that isn't working very well for me as Im afraid of losing adhesion,,, - Still have to continue to turn the foil on the main body more of a coppery colour before adding more and finishing the strut painting...Dragon has one out in the same scale but more up to date moulding - hoping to get one from Santa maybe...

Hmmm... the foil doesn’t look quite right. It also looks very difficult to get it right.
I might be wrong, but I think the Dragon version has the wrinkles moulded in.

Yeah, roger on the foil. I really struggled with it - I may back away from this for awhile until I get the Dragon kit... :angry-banghead: :?

Couldn't just leave it undone - so continued on with the LEM - A few more touch ups and then I will do the dio part - May replace the Revell one with the back ordered Dragon one when it arrives.....

That's looking good. The gold foil looks better now it's not out in the open, so to speak.

Sorry to flood this thread with pics, but it bothered me all night....I shot the first set under a yellowish light and the base colours are skewed...It looked like a Mars-scape rather than a lunarscape - So I just reshot on my work bench - just to calm down the colour issues.... :D

I like the way you’ve painted the shadows. Nice sharp edges, as they would been a vacuum.
