Apollo 15 was the ninth manned mission of the Apollo space program and the fourth mission to land on the Moon. Launched on July 26, 1971, it was the first “J-mission”, which allowed longer stays on the Moon's surface than had been previously possible, and the first mission to use the Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV). Commander David R. Scott and Lunar Module Pilot James B. Irwin spent almost three days on the Moon including 18½ hours outside the Lunar Module (LM), call sign Falcon, while Alfred Worden orbited above in the Command Module, call sign Endeavour, taking scientific readings and photographs. The mission ended successfully on August 7, 1971 when the Command Module splashed down in the Pacific Ocean after twelve days in space.

The command module served as the command, control and communications center for all non-lunar Apollo flights, as well for the majority of the mission on lunar flights. The CM consisted of two structures. The inner structure was the primary load-bearing component and was also the pressurized vessel that housed the crew. The outer structure, a three-piece heat shield, offered protection against the extreme heat encountered during reentry into Earth's atmosphere.

The service module (SM) provided the main spacecraft propulsion and maneuvering capability during a mission. It was a cylindrical structure consisting of an aft bulkhead, six radial beams, a forward bulkhead and six exterior panels


The Dragon Wings Space Collection includes high quality, fully assembled, die-cast models of spacecraft and rockets. Each model is crafted with meticulous attention to detail using original specifications. They are constructed with diecast metal and plastic components.
