This is Lunar Roving Vehicle as it participated in Apollo 15, 16 and 17 missions during 1971-1972. The model is in 1/18 scale made by Code 3 which does not produce models in 1/18 scale any more and some part of the model are gold-plated. IMO, the model is 100% exotic and I like it very much (it is not my new addition). BTW, each wheel in real LRV has an electric engine with power of 0.25 hp per engine.

Not just 'exotic', Lazard, but 'out of this world' !
Like the moon dust on the tyres for that added realism....

Is the reflection on the astronaut's helmet visor that of the lunar surface. This is by far the coolest Rover ever shown on DX. I am loving it. Lazard, you need a model of the Saturn V rocket that helped take the first men to the moon. Dragon makes one in 1:400 scale. It also includes the pod that brought the astronauts back home.
