Last Man on te Moon

Hi to all, I'm back.

I found a nice astronaut model designed by Julius Perdana , recently published on its website.



I immediately saw the resemblance to a photograph of Gene Cernan during Apollo 17 mission and I decided to build it.

As I proceeded with the construction, I decided to add some details to make the model more similar.

Below the photograph of the model compared with the original and an illustration of the additions.





I designed the Camera Hasselblad by SketchUp.



More pictures can be found on my Web Albums.

Enjoy,
Nando :D

Thank You Dyna-Soar, but your Astronaut is nice too. And Yes, the NASA meatball was in the right shoulder (see the Cerna portrait)

But the space suit of Schmitt wasn't so color full

Yes, the final result is very satisfactory, and, in my opinion, It well depict the subject

I have some idea about more enhancement:

first of all, put the Astronaut on the moon, i'm using the Ton's instructions about the Moonscape for his Surveyor model (paper machè)

Then complete some detail on PLSS. I discovered that on the PLSS of Cernan there was some interesting detail (see the picture I found on the capcom espace, l'encyclopédie de l' espace site)



And at last to try some technique to brush some powder (not lunar, but grey pastell) on a sample leg for test. If the result will be good I'll do on the model also.

I estimated the scale at 1/12 for my camera project, so, if you want to scale down the model to fit with the Udon's LEM (1/48), you have to reduce it to one third.

I'll keep You informed.

Nando :D

the only thing that separates the CDR suit from the LMP suit is that the LMP suit lacks the red stripes isn't it?

man, i've been looking at your astro a couple of times now, and it looks like a manufactured toy and not done in paper :D
you really managed to get some more life into it, with a little bit of dirt on it, it will even more real, really nice work you've done
