This project used a lot of thinned, rounded toothpicks for the lattice enveloping the fuselage. The main support frames were from sliced, regular sized popsicle sticks. Many of the smaller parts were from my spares 'box', thin and thick wooden coffee stirrers. Only the command module and support fame for the pods were from tongue depressor sized toothpicks.
I've got a chance to use the Dremel Workstation for this project. The moto tool mounted on the workstation freed both of my hands to twirl the small delicate parts to get the desired shape. This was especially useful for shaping the main support frames.
