Nice model but the Apollo 11 CSM is orbiting the moon in the wrong direction.
It was enjoyable to be able to pay a visit to the virtual place and time of the Apollo 11 mission. The renderings were very good, though the lighting was not always accurate and stars were visible through the Command Module windows. It would have been nice to watch the undocking of the CSM and LM when it realistically occurred at 17:44:00 GMT. Instead, on July 20, 1969 at 19:07:17 GMT, the LM simply vanished. Still, I had some fun and captured a handful of images of the combined spacecraft in lunar orbit. Good job.
The models are great! The only big thing I've seen wrong on it is the CSM only model seems to be missing the American flag on the side of the service module. Your site is awesome! Thanks again!
