ROVER NEWS May 2010
My rover model has appeared in 2 space films and a book.
The first is Mark Gray's "Live from the Moon
" 2 hour HD television documentary. The film "features key players in the Apollo television story." I am honoured to have my model appear in his film. You can order the DVD here
and the Blu Ray here
The second is a 3d short video simulation ride for the Science Museum in London England called "Legend of Apollo
". Ben Smith's Red Star 3d company created the film which depicts the mission of Apollo 15. Thanks to Eric Jones' Apollo Lunar Surface Journal, where my work is displayed, Ben was able to contact me to use my model in his film. Dave Scott, Commander of Apollo 15, is the technical advisor of this project. It is a tremendous honour as my model is the LRV-1 from Apollo 15.
Anthony Young kindly included my model in his space history book titled "Lunar and Planetary Rovers: The Wheels of Apollo and the Quest for Mars". It is an fascinating story about the lunar rover from start to finish. You can order his book here

For those of you who have been following my rover website, I have now completed LRV-1 from Apollo 15. For over 2 years I researched and modeled this amazing vehicle. I was able to complete up to a point and was fortunate to have found a number of kind folks on the internet who have helped me tremendously. I want to thank them again for their help.
I have now completed and produced this poster of the lunar rover. It is an overview of the 3 flights and includes images of the real rover along with images of my model illustrating the ingenious methods of deployment and other interesting facts about the design.
