The year is 1969; millions of people are watching in real life and on live television. History is about to be changed, NASA is about to send the first man to the moon.
Have a great day! :D

Nice, great details, love the use of the helmet!

Hey,

Very cool use of the helmet as fire. It reminds me a lot of MonsterBrick's part usage. Historical quibble - the Shuttle didn't go to the moon - it was the Saturn V rocket that launched the Apollo missions. The Shuttle didn't come along until the early 80's (...Googling...1981).

@ Knight Man
Thanks buddy! Glad you like it. :)

@ Bruce N H
Thank you Bruce. I know the storyline isn't really accurate to any historical facts, just had to write a description. :lol:

I like the use of the helmet!

I think this might have been better served photographed against a black background, since the shuttle washes out pretty badly (though maybe the helmet would look weird against black.

And I have to agree with Bruce. For something like this, it would be better to just omit any reference to a specific year than to give obviously inaccurate information on something so well-known as the first men on the moon. :tasty:
