This amazingly detailed model starts as three and a half 4″ square sheet and finishes as a 3-D model. The Apollo 11 moon landing required two spacecraft- The lunar module (LM) and command service module (CSM). Once in lunar orbit, the two would separate so the LM could land while the CSM waited in orbit. After launching from the lunar surface, the LM’s ascent stage would rendezvous and dock with the waiting CSM, then the astronauts would transfer back into the main spacecraft and head home. It sounds nearly impossible but that’s the way it was July 20, 1969. This model includes a golden plaque to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. The sheets contain detailed laser etching for easy removal and when completed measures 5.07″ x 2.28″ x 3.45″ with challenging difficulty. Complete instructions are included to show you how to pop out the pieces, bend the tabs, and connect them at the attachment points with an average assembly time of 60-75 minutes. It has been stored in a smoke and pet free environment. We also offer an optional LED base (white or blue lights) or a Solar Powered Spinner for better display of your model.
