|1:48 Apollo 11 "Lunar Approach" CSM "Columbia" + LM "Eagle",
Apollo 11 will forever remain hallowed in history books since it was the mission that first put man on the Moon. Watched by millions of TV viewers, the historic Moon landing occurred on 20 July 1969 when the lander touched down on the southern Sea of Tranquility. The Lunar Module (LM), christened Eagle, spent 21.5 hours on the Moon’s surface, while the Command & Service Module (CSM), named Columbia orbited above.
As for Dragon’s 1/48 scale model, it features the Eagle LM still coupled to the Columbia CSM on its approach to the Moon. The spacecraft modules possess accurate detail, and this kit conveniently provides them both in a single box. Having the two modules connected like this makes for an impressive sight when they’re exhibited on their integral display stand. The set also features a newly tooled adapter to combine the two modules together. Furthermore, the kit makes for an interesting education lesson, allowing modelers to understand more about this milestone event. Dragon is here providing a 1/48 scale kit that will serve as a magnificent desktop display piece thanks to its outstanding size and uncompromising detail.
