Nice sharp shots - reminded me of a project I keep meaning to try doing a composite of different phases - just never seem to get round to it. I had a quick go with your posted shots here. I didn't get the scaling/alignment quite right but you could probably do much better with the originals. I just used 3 layers with the full moon on the bottom and the half moons above using the soft-light option:

Interesting idea- and you'd certainly get a face full of craters,as opposed to the full Moon being lit face on.
It would actually be quite tricky as the Moon actually wobbles a touch on it's axis every day- though if you're lucky enough to have clear skies for a few days and you can take the said shot at the same spot in the sky,then it's definitely worth a go..
