Now you can play with the only manned vessels to have left Earth orbit. Reenact all your favorite docking maneuvers and Moon landings.
UPDATE: I have refreshed the design of this model to use my new pin library. I've also improved the design slightly and printed it out, so I know it works now.
These models are as close to 1:67 scale as I can manage, working from various drawings and dimensions. The Lunar Ascent Module is courtesy of NASA: http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/3d_resources/models.html, which has a lot of free 3D models of spacecraft. I simplified it and made it manifold using Meshlab and Netfabb's cloud service.
Slip the serviceRing onto the end of the service module; this is meant to be a permanent attachment. All the other attachments use pinpegs and represent actual docking connections between the spacecraft. A little grease on the pegs makes them easier to remove.
Everything should be printable without support, though the ascent module may be pushing the limits. I added a thin wall to support the largest overhang, so just snap this off once printed.
