1963 Grumman Lunar Excursion Module


This is a replica of the 1963 LEM Prototype model displayed in the Cradle of Aviation Museum, Long Island, NY.

It is produced as a ‘neatened up’ version of the original that I hope, still retains all of the character of the original.

The main components of the model are moulded plastic, while the landing gear is fabricated from brass tube with turned brass footpads and locating pins, all soldered together.

The LEM can be removed from the Perspex base.

The ascent/descent stages can be separated and are located in position with stainless steel dowels and internal magnets.

Top and front egress/docking hatches and the Rendezvous radar are removable so the model can be displayed in any configuration.

Large and small orbital laboratory modules are included and can be displayed in multiple configurations.

Polished Perspex base with printed logos, model location holes on the top surface and green baize on the underside.

Model height is 190mm in regular configuration.

The Perspex base is available in 2 different diameters:

230mm diameter as displayed in the Cradle of Aviation Museum or 266mm diameter to accommodate the model more comfortably.

Product Options

Just like the originals, these models are hand made so may have small imperfections or manufacturing marks. 

We do not keep models in stock. Each model will be manufactured on demand so it may take 6 to 8 weeks for manufacturing and shipping.  Please be aware of this when placing your order. 

Once your model is ready to ship, you will receive email notification with a tracking number.  The tracking number can be used on the carriers website when it has reached your country. 

We try our best with safe packaging, however, models occasionally get damaged during shipping. If something arrives damaged please contact me immediately & send a picture via email (Robert.j@me.com). I will do my best to resolve any breakages immediately.
