Considering I got the Bandai Shuttle and Dragon's X-37B....mind as well continue the space journey and get the famous Apollo 11. The diorama is pretty cool, it include everything from the Command Module to the Lunar Module + Armstrong and Aldrin chilling on the lunar surface. Dragon Wings did a fantastic job with this model, although I do wish the Lunar Module was diecast. Sadly that's mainly plastic along with the diorama itself. The only thing that's actually diecast is the command module (and not a lot of it). Nevertheless, it still looks cool and I would recommend it. Here's some pics:
The Box:


What's included inside (as always, Bandai's infamous fiddly little pieces - so be careful when you put the lunar module together, lots of fragile pieces that takes a lot of patience to put it together without snapping the plastic)


Closeup of the Command Module:




Closeup of the Lunar Module:



And finally put it all together:


In honor of Apollo 11, I even got a nice little patch for it:


A great complementary model is Corgi's Apollo Sea King.

I think the original poster's photo must be given appreciation first.
