The Eagle Has Landed

Here are some images of Dave Porter's Apollo 11 LM landing and here in his own words is his description.

This is a 1/48 scale depiction of one of the greatest events in human history. Apollo 11.(If you were to say “greatest” I wouldn’t argue.) This is an out of the box model of the Lunar Lander compliments of Monogram. Its a good kit that went together reasonably well. The moon surface is pretty neat and the Astronaut miniatures are cool too. The gold covering for the lander that was included in the kit didn’t work so well. I decided to sugar up and buy a few Caramilk bars in order to use the nice gold foil that they’re wrapped in.

right down to the details on their space suits. Very nice!

Thanks Pat.

I was just a little kid when the event took place. Our family gathered around the TV to watch. My dad broke out some wine to toast Armstrong's giant leap and we all shared in that.
A very good memory it is.
