the black areas on the descent stage quads are black, yet in photographs on the Moon's surface, they look very grey

I think that is down to the intensity of the sunlight but having never seen the real material I can’t be sure.

I'm not up to making the frames for the deflectors


Go on Retro, you can do the frames. I built them for the 1/96 Revell version. Have a look at this. http://airfixtributeforum.myfastforum.org/about14146.html Look forward to seeing your rendering, there’s always room for more real space craft on the site.

Ok, I'll have a try at the frames, although I'm sceptical of my abilities!
However, I will share my take on the module when it's eventually done. I might have a go at the docking probe as well, as this is very noticeable by it's absence, to me anyway!

Brilliant and beautiful!

I am gob-smacked!

I will certainly be using your build notes when I build my Airfix LEM!

Very, very well done and thanks for the build thread and for the photos of the finished 'ship'!

That is simply the best LEM model I have ever seen!
All the details and the right colours are there and you made it so lifelike. LOVE your work.
