I've had one of Monogram's 1/32 scale Apollo capsules stashed away for a while and was pleased to see Stevens International commission a reissue of the recently. To date, the Monogram kit is the most detailed rendition of the Apollo spacecraft produced in kit form.
A few years ago, I happened across RealSpace Models' website and noted that they had correction/detail sets for the Monogram 1/32 Apollo spacecraft. One of these was set of thin resin parts to provide some much-needed relief detail on the cabin interior walls, plus an equally detailed replacement instrument panel.
As I mentioned in my review of the Monogram kit (look here), the interior of the command module is rendered with decals, and printed with odd colors at that.
This is a very simple update. Most of the resin parts simply laminate over the existing kit walls. The instrument panel is a complete replacement for the kit part. With this relief detail and some photos, you can render the interior with the same look and feel that was flown so many years ago.
You can purchase this or any of the RealSpace Models line directly from RealSpace Models' website (www.realspacemodels.com).
