The newly released Lego Apollo 11 Lunar Lander kit 10266 has received praise from fans. However one detail many people got annoyed with was that the space suits of the minifigures didn't look much like the Apollo suits. I couldn't resist the challenge to design my own Apollo suit.
The files has some supports in them for the backpack but additional support will be needed for the helmet and visor.
Some sanding and printed the visor gold. The visor could of course be printed in gold coloured filament but I didn't have any and didn't want to buy a roll just for this tiny part.
Using various Lego helmets as reference as well as tons of images from the Apollo suits I tried to come up with a design that looked both as Lego and as an Apollo suit. I made the first sketches in Illustrator, then designed the shapes in Maya and made the lego connections in Tinkercad.
