Hi Paul, following on from your earlier MOL feature, here is the lid of the Revell kit mentioned. Regards, Andy B.
Wow! Thanks Andy. WACO made the same thing in tin, the Space Refuel Station seen below [vintage space toys.com]. I love all those guys garbed in orange overalls beavering away at who knows what! I've oft dreamt of a plastic toy version of this out there somewhere.
MOL modules remind me of the classic Moon Base pods as seen below in an original 1960's artist's impression supplied to Wote by space historian David Portree.
Andy B also provided this Walls Sky Ray lollipop card below from the Sixties featuring a beautiful little artwork of a very similar Moon Base concept and so SpaceXy!
Speaking of which, here she is, our very own SpaceX Moon Base as seen on the box. I'm assuming a Moon Base would be referred to as a 'she' in the same way ships are. MOLS are no doubt feminine as well but don't ask a gangster!
