With all the background out of the way on to the build! The box is filled with bags numbered from 1 to 4, a unnumbered bag with plates, a sticker sheet and of course the manual.

First step is to make the base. Simple and quick build. It took me about 20 minutes to finish this step. The base consists of the 4 craters where the lunar lander will stand, some rocks, the famous flag and the footsteps of one of the astronaut!

Bag 2 starts with the internals of the lunar lander where you will build the base frame and the o2 tanks and a start of the outer frame.

Bag 3 contains the rest of the base frame and legs.

And with bag 4 you will finish of the lunar lander en place it on the base!

Conclusion: This is an absolute must have for every space freak and especially if you are in to space in the 60’s! Great fun building this set with some fun techniques. To bad it uses a faire lot of stickers but i comes out great!
