NW051 1/32 Apollo astronauts
The New Ware astronauts are far
more accurate and detailed than the Monogram figures. The figures
are the perfect compliment to the New Ware photo etched detail
set for the Command Module.
Duplicating the clear helmets for the Apollo astronauts has been one of the most elusive features for space modelers. After many attempts, New Ware has been able to capture these helmets by vacuum forming an accurate master. The astronauts are shown with their ”Snoppy” communication caps.
The figures were sculpted by Ignacio Bernacer Alpera, who has sculpted several other figures for New Ware. The Apollo astronauts feature high relief and crisp detail which bring the figures to life and makes painting easier.
The figures come complete with the mission patches and name tags for the crews of Apollo 8, 11 and 17.
