Flightline/Robbins Silver Medallions - Apollo missions

This was a suggestion by my forum Moderator Vermin King last year.
And a great suggestion it was, because as usual, when researching a model project,
I learn so much about that subject...and things that I never knew.

And, the fact that I have a personal interest in all things Space, and Rocket, and the Apollo space program
makes this a very interesting project.

I've had these models completed since last year...but I just never got around to publishing...apologies.




The Medallions were mainly designed by the crews of each Apollo mission and flown on various space flights.
The are marked with the dates and flights on the reverse.

I think they were mainly to serve as gifts and mementos to colleagues, relatives and VIPs.

I chose to focus on three important Apollo missions...
the ill fated Apollo 1 which never flew due to a fatal ground fire.
Apollo 11, which went to the Moon and back.
And the aborted Apollo 13 Moon mission that made the entire World hold its collective breath.

The paper Medallions are each exact size to the real Medallions and each come with a display stand.
Not a difficult build, but patience is required to assemble everything precisely and cleanly.
The Model sheets also feature basic information on the Robbins Flight Medallions and copies of the Mission Patches.

You can download the individual Medallions (model sheets) at the cutandfold forum:
www.papermodelforum.com

You'll find them in the Free Stuff area of the Member's Forums.
Yes, you have to register on the Forum to access that area.
But theres lot of free stuff in there.
(Its also where you can download the Assembly sheets for Koolwheelz models)

Since this project started, the bases have changed a few times.

I showed them to a friend (a retiree from GE, that used to work with NASA), and he wanted a set. A NASA retiree saw them in his office on a visit, and Dan gave them to him with a request for another set. My aunt's fourth or fifth husband was a NASA retiree, so she has a set. When Dave decided to release these, I went back and made a set for myself.

Nice little pieces that remember important dates in the Apollo space program
