Apollo CSM with LEM (Metal Earth 3D 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.
Create awesome, desktop-sized replicas of historical landmarks and vehicles! Each kit comes with one or two thin, flexible sheets of shiny metal with all the pieces laser cut and engraved. Follow the directions to assemble the models using tabs and slots - no glue or soldering required! When you're done, you'll have a highly-detailed model. Sizes vary, but most would fit within a 5" cube. The instructions are a bit tricky and some parts are quite small, so these would be best for older children or experienced model builders. You'll need to supply needle nose pliers, tweezers, and clippers, or purchase the Tool Kit which includes nippers, flat nose pliers and needle nose pliers. Finished models are beautiful and can be displayed on a lighted base or spinner, sold below. ICONX kits feature more detail and slightly larger models than original kits. These will take some time to assemble, but the finished product is definitely worth the effort!
