Launched July 16, 1969, the Apollo 11 Mission was the first manned mission to land on the moon. It was the fifth human spaceflight of Project Apollo and the third human voyage to the moon. It carried Mission Commander Neil Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, and Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin.
On July 20, Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to land on the moon, while Collins orbited above. With more than half a billion people watching on television, Armstrong stepped from the capsule onto the moon and made history, proclaiming, "That's one small step for a man; one giant leap for mankind."
This museum-quality handcrafted model comes complete on base, perfect for display.
Master craftsmen, working from three-dimensional drawings, handcraft each model from either the finest Philippine mahogany or state-of-the-art composite. Each model is shaped with remarkable precision and attention to detail. Several stages of fine sanding, between primer coats, produce a smooth finish ready for final painting. Talented artists using ultra-fine brushes and decals, paint the nose art, stripes and markings. A final coat of clear polyurethane provides lasting protection and brilliance.
