Build the Apollo 11 Lunar Module

Postby conqueror060 » Tue Aug 21, 2018 9:48 pm

New partwork test is coming on 12th September 2018 for Apollo 11, from deagostini this time.

Let's hope this time won't be abandoned like the 2015 Hachette test! 8-)

The announcement was made on ModelSpace forum by a moderator. Here are some more details about the model:

- " It's 1/24 scale; Die-cast metal & injection moulded ABS plastic parts; Authentic details created with reference to NASA; Functioning lights; Fully detailed interior; 2x Astronaut's; Authentic exterior detail; Pre-painted parts - Panel colours are based on the materials actually used on the Lunar
Module; Lunar surface display base and is from DeAgostini; The module is 28cm high (11")"

- "If Rights will allow it, we're hoping to also adopt having a button on the Apollo display base which links to a digital recording of Neil Armstrong's word's - "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind".

Unfortunately there isn't any picture available yet but will have soon.

Google translate detects the language of Latin

This is what it translate to (apparently :think: ) "Vigna, as looking culius; Nonsum cast contest, Patil extent do you agree better behavior"

I think it probably translate to "Push the front pack on until if fits perfectly"

That’s called an oversight :lol:

Publishers often fill text boxes with Latin if the actual text isn’t available. It gives a better visual impression and is easy to spot when checking the document (or so you’d think :laughing-rolling: )

I've subscribed to this test :D

One word of caution. You automatically agree to receive binders and special issues. I guess you have to phone customer services to tell them not to send them. However, you can return them within 14 days if you don't want them.
