accompanying images and text to announce their new 1/32 scale Astronaut
"In March, New Ware released its new 1/32 scale
astronauts for the Monogram Apollo capsule. The New Ware figures are
designed to fit on the couches in the command module.
The Monogram Command and Service Module is the largest kit by a major
manufacturer of the Apollo capsule. Originally released in 1970, it is
among the most popular space kits ever issued.
The New Ware astronauts are the perfect compliment to the New Ware photo

the most elusive features for space modelers. After many attempts, New
Ware has been able to capture these helmets by vacuum forming an
accurate master. The astronauts are shown with their “Snoppy”
The Apollo astronauts are sold in groups of three different poses with
separate heads. The figures were sculpted by Ignacio Bernacer Alpera,
who has sculpted several other figures for New Ware and is a prominent
sculptor of figures.
The figures cost USD$30 for a full set of three. They come complete with
the mission patches and name tags for the crews of Apollo 8, 11 and 17.
The figures with their clear plastic helmets depict the crew at the time
of their launch aboard the mighty Saturn V.
A photo of the unpainted astronauts is shown below, which includes the
vacuum formed helmet.
