Celebrating 40th Anniversary of Lunar Landing

A few months ago I saw the model kit for Apollo Lunar Module in a toy store in Sindelfingen. It was being offered to mark the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11 lunar landing. The model caught my attention and imagination but I didn't buy it. But my wife Nitya offered to buy the model as a gift and I just could not refuse !! Exactly 4 months ago I flew in that same module, landed on the moon and came back safely to earth. This is my certificate as a testimony of the feat :-)

I worked on assembling and painting the kit for the last few days and here is how it went -

These are the individual components of the kit -

This is the final model -

This is where it is in our study room -
