Default Apollo 11 Eagle - First LEM on the Moon

Here are some photos of my latest finished client build - a Monogram 1/48 scale Apollo 11 Eagle, the LEM used during the first lunar landing back in 1969. The model sits about 10 inches above the base which features a lunar surface decal made for me by MEATLOAFr over on AST. Lots of work done with aftermarket resin/PE parts and decals to make this look more authentic to the original:

Below are photos of the wooden shipping crate I custom built for shipment to So Cal. Care was taken to ensure nothing came in contact with
the model's more fragile photo-etch and resin bits. The base locks in using foam and foam padded wooden blocks; another padded wooden block sandwiches the acrylic rod at about the middle of the box (one half in the box and the other half on the underside of the lid); and a padded conical wooden dowel docks with the conical upper hatch of the LEM to lock it in place. I built the crate using plywood and birch cut on my portable table saw before being glued and screwed together:

Special instructions were included to ensure a successful LEM deployment:

Shipped her on Saturday and she's out for delivery today. The Eagle will be kept in a 15" tall acrylic display case provided by my client. Hopefully he sends me a photo of the LEM in her new home.

Sharp sah!
Nicely executed piece and methinks the client will be happy with it, I know I would be.
