1/350 Pegasus Hobbies Moonlander has Landed
This article is part of a series:
Okay, so I finally finished the 1/350 Pegasus Hobbies Moonlander. This kit really was a lot of fun to build. lighting it really made it stand out. I used teeny tiny , itsy bitsy little LEDs in side the crew compartmant at the top and slighly larger ones at the base of the tanks. Paint was all Miision Models. The base was created using railroad scenery foam for the very bottom to which I glued more rigid foam that was layered. I carved out rough contours using my Benchmade knife, then painted on acrylic gel medium with pumice. I waited a couple of days for it to dry, then applied plaster of Paris. I carved ridges and cracks using several orthopedic instruments and painted it with Mission Models Light Gull gray and weathered it with several Mig washes. This is my first diorama and I’m pretty pleased with the way the moon surface turned out. I might make another one for my Apollo CSM. I’ll have more on this on my website http://www.georgesmodels.com soon
