The second of Dragon’s new 1/72 scale collection of spacecraft kits to be launched onto the market is also a depiction of the famous Apollo 11 craft.
This time it shows the Lunar Module (LM), christened Eagle, which landed on the southern Sea of Tranquility on the Moon on July 20, 1969.
The accurately detailed LM model can be displayed on a realistic diorama base of the lunar surface. This base even includes details like footprints on the lunar soil!
The inclusion of two newly tooled 1/72 astronauts adds to the dramatic scene that can be created instantly straight from the box. 2 realistic 1/72 scale figures
Preformed "Moon Landing" display base
Delicate command/service module and lunar module with astonishing detail
Authentic ascent stage
Egress platform with delicate detail
Diminutive reaction control thruster assembled with crisp details
Realistic landing radar antenna molded with details
Intricate descent stage with realistic engine
Intricate docking target and VHF antenna on ascent stage
S-band steerable antenna and rendezvous radar antenna can be folded up /down
Realistic service propulsion system reproduced
Photo-etched service module antennas authentically reproduced
Docking Probe Assembly rendered with intricate detail
This kit also includes a 1/72 scale model of the CM and it can be displayed on its own display stand. The CM comes with photo-etched metal parts to replicate its antennas.
The kit features:
||Exactly What You Wanted
by John from Fairfax, VA on Sep 5, 2011
||Long awaited, a very crisply molded Apollo set in 1/72 scale. The set includes a lunar surface baseplate and a steel pylon for the command module. Accurate, as far as I can tell. The descent stage and legs have the Kapton foil "molded on," to be painted; no foil is included. There are no transparencies; windows are portrayed with decals. The astronaut figures are more accurate to later missions, and don't have cameras on their chests. It would be a challenge to detail the interiors; structural stiffeners inside would have to be removed, and an interior totally scratchbuilt. However, this kit is everything it says it is, and the astronauts can be reworked to be more accurate. A far, dar better model than the woeful Heller kit in this scale. I got no impression from the parts breakout that later LMs--such as those that carried the lunar riover--are planned for future releases, although the main body of the descent stage is supplied as a wholly separate part in its own baggie. So, perhaps. All in all, excellent value for the money. Two complete kits, with a base and figures. How can you go wrong?
