Space is a very intereting subject, almost as interesting as aircraft so I thought it would be nice to buils a spaceship. I have read a lot about the apollo space program and about this particular mission. So, when I saw this model from Dragon, it was an easy decision to get it.
The kit is not very complicated. I built it almost out of the box. I only added a little detail inside the hatch that was blown away from the explosion, namely some pipes and cables (using lead solder wire) and heatshields (using aluminum foil). Oh, and I had to replace a couple of the nozzles of the small reaction control thrusters as they are very easy to break (and lose).
