The print test is done. Before going any further, please let us know in the comments if you’re interested in this type of model.
I was asked to model the SURVEYOR 3 mission probe at 1/6th scale. This model will be available for download on the website if I get enough expressions of interest in this model.
See the current modeling step, ready to make it printable :
Video ! :
This A21 probe was the 3rd to carry out successful analyses on lunar soil in 1967.
It was visited by the Astraunauts of the APOLLO 12 mission in 1969, which enabled us to take a few photos on site.
The camera was dismantled (ripped out!) and brought back to earth to analyze the condition of the components after 3 years on the moon :
It might be interesting for me to model the ATLAS CENTAUR launcher that made it possible to send this probe.
