Incredibly neat lunar surface models!

One of the nice folks I met on my recent New York trip was Howard Fink, an enthusiastic amateur astronomer and observer who has made some really neat Moon models.

Howard is an active member of the Amateur Astronomers Association and produces these plastic models of various craters for sale.

They are handmade works of art, and really quite incredible. I have not seen anything exactly like them before, and I thought some of you lunar observers would want to know about them!

You can go to these sites to see some of his work, or even buy some of them; view some of Howard’s earlier work; and see the processes he uses.
