The Apollo space program aimed to put man on the Moon, and the final dry run was the Apollo 10 mission launched on May 18, 1969. Apollo 10 was designed to test all the procedures of a Moon landing, everything except the actual landing itself. During the NASA mission, the Lunar Module (LM) actually came to within 15 km of the Moon’s surface during maneuvers. The crew of three was also able to survey the eventual Apollo 11 landing site in the Sea of Tranquility.

The LM was deliberately not equipped for a landing and the ascent module was short-fueled so that the crew wouldn’t be tempted to make a landing! The LM was nicknamed “Snoopy”, while the Command Module was called “Charlie Brown”. This was the fourth manned Apollo mission before the successful Moon landing of Apollo 11 on July 20th. On its return to earth on May 25 1969 it attained a record-breaking speed of 39,897 km/h!

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 some plastic components.
