Astrodan
The original Astrodan was one of those outrageous examples of asymmetrical custom design. First debuted in Revell-Pactra I contest in which it won a Regional award, Lonn rebuilt it and painted it a wild metalflake candy green.
Sculptor Mike Good studied information supplied by the Museum and his own records to fashion this spot-on replica of Stern's model. Mike reported a lot of work that consumed nearly three months of his time! This will be a great replica for our Clone the Past program.
I have the privilege of painting the model. Mike and I worked for months to find the right color (we tried to replicate the original painting scheme and that didn't work), finally settling on a House of Kolor paint. In this photo, the first coat of lacquer primer has been lightly sanded to find surface flaws of which there were virtually none!
