Apollo 11 was the first manned mission to land on the Moon. It was the fifth human spaceflight of Project Apollo and the third human voyage to the Moon. Launched on July 16, 1969, it carried Mission Commander Neil Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin, Jr. On July 20, Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon, while Collins orbited above.

Dragon Space new 1/72 scale collection of spacecraft has successfully blasted off! The latest one to be launched onto the market is a depiction of the famous Apollo 11 craft. The second Apollo 11 item in the Space Series shows the Lunar Module (callsign: "Eagle") which landed on the southern Sea of Tranquility on the Moon. This milestone event was watched by millions of TV viewers, and now modelers can have this very scene. The accurately detailed LM model can be displayed on a realistic dioramic base of the lunar surface. This base even includes details on the lunar soil! The inclusion of two brand new 1/72 astronauts adds to the dramatic scene.

North American Apollo CSM

Built for NASA by North American Aviation, the Apollo Command/Service Module was first launched on January 20, 1966 during the A-004 flight that comprised the final test of the Apollo launch system. One of two spacecraft used for the Apollo program, the Command/Service Module (CSM), along with the Lunar Module, was used to land astronauts on the moon. The two part system included the disposable Service Module, which provided power, propulsion and storage and was cast off prior to re-entry, and the Command Module, which housed the crew and the equipment necessary for a successful re-entry and splashdown at the end of a mission.

Grumman Apollo Lunar Module

Built for NASA by Grumman, the Apollo Lunar Module was first test flown (unmanned) as part of the Apollo 5 mission, launched on January 22, 1968. One of two spacecraft used for the Apollo program, the Lunar Module, along with the the Command/Service Module (CSM), was used to land astronauts on the moon. The module consisted of a rocket-powered ascent stage mounted atop a separately powered descent stage that was equipped with four folding legs that were extended enroute to the moon for the lunar touchdown. The ascent stage incorporated a docking hatch to allow crewmembers to transfer between the Lunar Module and Command Module.

Dragon's 1:72 scale Apollo spacecraft is comprised of an accurately recreated Command Module permanently mated to an equally detailed Service Module. The Command Module is constructed in plastic with a metallic chrome finish, complete with a separately-attached docking probe mechanism, handles and umbilical cable fairing. The Service Module is made primarily from diecast metal, with plastic components used to achieve fine details such as the four equally spaced reaction control thruster assemblies. Other details include clearly visible raised electrical and environmental radiator panels, four delicate photo-etched metal deep space antennas that rotate in unison and a large engine nozzle that is beautifully replicated with crisp scale panel lines and internal nozzle details.

Dragon's 1:72 scale Lunar Module is constructed entirely of plastic and loaded with many fine details. The multi-faceted upper "ascent stage" features separately applied communication and radar antennas and four reaction control thruster assemblies. The forward portion features simulated front and docking windows and a crew hatch with egress platform and ladder below. The entire lower "decent stage" correctly showcases the wrinkled finish of simulated thermal insulation sheets. Addition details include plume defector shields mounted to the top of this stage below each reaction control thruster. The landing gear is fixed in the retracted position for some releases or deployed in others (see photos).
