This 1/7 scale Lunar Rover was built for Apollo 12 astronaut Alan Bean.  The model measures almost 20 inches in length.  Its frame, suspension, high-gain antenna and most of the lunar hand tools were built of brass and silver soldered.  Other parts were made from plastic and cast resin.  The fenders are molded fiberglass.
