Phoenix User Built Models: Apollo 11 LM Eagle


"Tranquiity base; the Eagle has landed."

"One giant leap for mankind".

July 16th 1969, I was just approaching 15 years old. A group of young lads from school went around to a friend's house who was only one with a colour TV to watch the launch of the mighty Saturn V.

I begged my father to be allowed to watch the moon landing live on our TV on July 20th. The program was scheduled for 03:00 in the morning in the UK and needing to get up for work a few hours later he refused, telling me I could watch it on the news later that day. I was obsessed with the moon race and never forgave him for denying me the chance to watch it live, even ribbing him about it to this day!

Here in commemoration of that historic event 50 years ago is the Eagle.

Landing gear is retractable, radio dishes and antenna respond to the controls.

Derived from a SketchUp model by Fort Opus.

You can download the model here.
