From the long list of build plans I have, this '69 AstroVette. They were designed exclusively for each of the Apollo 12 crew, and the pics are of Alan Bean's car. Pretty cool I thought. Still hunting some details about the real cars, and hunting down a source for those hubcaps in 1/25 scale.

What does the LMP stand for? Lunar Module Project?

Lunar Module Pilot

 

I believe those wheels can also be found in the AMT 1969 Riviera that's seen a couple of recent reissues.

Yeah, Lunar Module Pilot, this was Alan Bean's job on the Apollo 12 mission..

Thanks yall for the hubcap info, I went ahead and ordered a set from that eBay seller..

Also, thanks to some info posted on the "Rapid Transit System Paint Code 'Cuda" thread, I was able to source a set of HO scale white pinstripes from Microscale..

Now, to actually build the thing!
