The Apollo Spacecraft that transported Astronauts to the moon for the first time consisted of two parts, the Command Module and the Service Module. The Command Module contained quarters for the three men, as well as extensive electronics, communications and guidance systems. It was supplied with oxygen and electric power from the Service Module, which also contained the main propulsion engine for attaining lunar orbit and for firing into the return trip. After completing the entire mission to and around the moon and back toward earth together, the two modules separated just minutes before entering the atmosphere leaving only the Command Module to return to earth.
The gold color on this model simulates the gold foil covering of the actual Command Module. Interior details such as figures of the three Astronauts, instrument and control panels, structural members, parachutes, oxygen and hydrogen tanks, and fuel cells may be viewed through transparent sections.
The model is 12-3/4" long (32.4cm) and stands 8-5/8" tall (21.9cm) on its display base. Engine nozzle extension and high-gain antenna are moveable.

Another re-box of a tried and true model kit, this one will be well received, as it has great potential for fine details. The kit already has service bay parts. Additional wires and plumming make it a fascinating display. It's good to see it again.
