Very good! Not to many people are interested in original space, and things along those lines. It's always nice to look back, and appreciate the things that inspired us to re-write the Sci-fi stories. I applaud your creation!
Awesome! So glad you did both parts. The only things that might improve it is if the bottom of the lander was in gold brick (where would you find them?) and maybe if you used a few of the old classic space lunar landscape plates.
For anyone asking themselves "why does this look familiar?" it's very close to his "Houston, we have a problem" entry. I just checked it to make sure and the landing skids ARE different so as far as I can tell, it's NOT the same moc. Same background, sure, but that's not part of the "moc." Score of 4 ~ Chris.
