The Eagle progresses...

Paint stripping on the metal parts of my Eagle is now complete - here are all the bits cleaned up and laid out ready for the next stage. Mould lines have been filed away, and any rough bits smoothed with some fine grade wet & dry. After the paint stripping, the whole model (including all plastic parts) has been scrubbed in warm water with washing up liquid and an old toothbrush to make sure that it is thoroughly de-greased and all traces of paint stripper have been removed.

Here is the beaky command module. The fitting was slightly loose, so some superglue has been run around the back to fix it more firmly to the walkway connecting section.

Trial assembly to make sure that all the bits fit together cleanly.

Next... on to superdetailing the model!
