Default The Russian moon mobile from Responsibility Seat

I watched it for the first time in years on Forces TV Sunday and had totally forgotten about it.

Great model but does anyone know if it was largely kitbashed or mainly scratchbuilt with a few kit parts?

Hard to tell much from the image but it looks to be covered in kit parts

Yes not the best image. I'll see if I can find another one. I love moon vehicles especially with 6 wheels.

Images collected from the internet... An interesting Mike Trim design. I think it was supposed to represent a Russian 'Mobile Lunar Drilling Rig'. The wheel design owes a lot to the (unused) Grumman Lunar Rover concept vehicle which was developed for NASA for the Apollo missions.

Great pictures. I really liked that episode. The only part I know for sure is the front half of the Lunar Module on the right side of the vehicle. I think I also saw a part from the Revel Gemini. I don't see any of the usual parts that show up on so many of the other Anderson models.

Nice to see the 'Marx Sooper Snooper' toy periscope making another appearance (typically seen in TB1 and TB3's launch bays)
