The Apollo spacecraft that carried the astronauts to the moon consisted of 2 components: the command module and the service module. The command module consisted of the accommodation/cockpit section for the 3 astronauts and extensive electronic communication systems. The oxygen and power were supplied from the service module that also contained the main power plant, to enable the lunar orbit to be reached and also to provide the thrust for the return to Earth. The command and service modules were coupled together throughout the mission, that is on the journeys both to and from the moon. Only a few minutes before entry into the Earth's atmosphere the command module was separated from the service module. The command module alone returned to Earth and landed safely on parachutes in the Pacific. The set includes four paints for the basic decoration, a two-sided paintbrush and "Revell Contacta Professinal Mini".
