I’m not sure what went wrong, I followed the Haynes Apollo 11 Owners Workshop Manual , I just cant help but feel its a little on the small side?  I always thought I’d have trouble getting it out the shed. For the more eagle eyed amongst us (no pun intended), you may have noticed that I have constructed the Eagle Lunar Module (LM pronounced LEM). Without any help from the original builder, Grumman, mine is constructed, not out of expensive metal alloys, but of plastic and gold foil from an Easter egg. Then again its a 1:48 scale model with a skill rating of 3 of the Revell Apollo Lunar Module Eagle.

Powered by a throttleable descent engine with 16 smaller jets assembled on thrust clusters (Reaction Control Systems – RCS), gives astronauts control in wingless airless flight down to the lunar surface where the LM will become their base and home.

Departure from the moon means a separation of the ascent stage of the LM from the descent stage. The upper stage rises to rendezvous with the Command Module(CM). Once complete, the upper stage is then jettisoned into lunar orbit, later crashing back onto the Moon’s surface where it rests today, location unknown. For the more wealthy elite, a full scale version can be purchased from the following site here.
