The 1:3 scale Apollo Command Module is an accurate representation of the three-man spacecraft designed to take astronauts to the moon and return them safely to Earth.   The 1:3 scale Lunar Module is an accurate representation of the module which carried Apollo astronauts to the surface of the moon.

The Static Space Shuttle is a self-contained model, which includes the Shuttle's orbiter, external tank and solid rocket boosters.
The "update" Saturn I, or IB, is accurately depicted in a series of scale models. The Saturn IB was developed to test Apollo hardware in Earth orbit. Four such tests were flown between 1966 and 1968. Saturn IB also launched Skylab 2, 3 and 4 in 1973 and the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project in 1975. This model is suitable for indoor or outdoor display.   The 1:10 scale Saturn V shows the configuration of the vehicle which launched the Apollo astronauts to the moon and placed the United States' first space station, Skylab, into Earth orbit.
