The scale hatch has been expertly created from a full-scale CAD model of the Apollo 11 Command Module hatch by a team of engineers and model makers to ensure complete technical and aesthetic accuracy. The main hatch body and outer window frame have been silicone tooled and molded in high-quality PU prototyping resin from SLA 3D printed masters. The internal and external hatch windows are laser cut for precision. The rear workings of the hatch and external handle and purge port are centrifugally cast in lead-free white metal that has been barrel and individually polished to finish. Color-matched automotive paints have been used for the main assembly, with smaller components being hand-painted to enhance the detail further. Aerospace-grade foils have been applied to the external surfaces with accurately scaled and digitally printed labels applied to complete the model. The model sits atop a CNC machined aluminum base echoing the shape of the Apollo Command Module bearing a laser engraved Apollo Program emblem.
