Thanks everyone! I am making a "final" build now. If it turns out ok, and I don't have to do anymore revisions, I'll post the template in the downloads section.
If you aren't interested in mounting this on a tiny drone, like I plan to, it still makes a nice, simple LM model. It all fits on a single US letter sheet, has the color included, and can be built in a couple of hours I think, give or take a few cut slip ups.

Unlike my other designs, which are darn near unbuildable and have to be painted, lol.

Here are some final build pictures. The first shows three different material and finish tests. I made one from 80 lb card stock with a color print. The second I used the same print and card stock but I sprayed two layers of clear coat on the print side, and dark gray enamel on the back side. The third I printed on 51 lb HP photo paper and sprayed the backside with dark gray enamel. I used the photo paper version for the final model, as it exhibited the best strength, weight, and appearance for the flying version. The double coated card stock seemed to have a little too much weight and performance was sluggy.

The others show the final LM and the little drone that will power it. Videos of test flights to come...

I just uploaded the template and instructions to the download section. Hope someone will build and enjoy it

When I get a little more time, I'll make a video of it flying with the drone. It's kinda neat to fly your own lunar module!

BTW, this is the drone I use. It's only 30 usd, and it flies great for such a low cost drone. Believe me, I'm no expert drone pilot! Even I can fly this model

Thanks, ARMORMAN. Well here is a video of me piloting the lander to some admittedly bumpy landings
