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.

Amazing DIY models with stunning details
Metal Earth is made from . Each model features amazing detail with parts cut from one or more 4” square steel sheets. Easy to follow instructions are included with each kit and Simply snip out the pieces and bend the tabs through corresponding connection points.
Parts can be more easily removed from the sheet using a pair of clippers.
Highly recommended tools for successful assembly: tweezers, needle nose pliers, flat nose pliers, clipper.
Plan out and understand how the parts will come together. Folding any piece back and forth along a fold line more than 2 times will cause the piece to weaken and/or break. Be sure to use a gentle touch.
Parts lock together using tabs and holes. Pay close attention to the CIRCLE and TRIANGLE symbols:
A CIRCLE represents a tab that should be folded 90°.
A TRIANGLE represents a tab that should be twisted 90°.
