Note: at the time of the Apollo missions, the lunar lander was referred to as the Lunar Excursion Module, abbreviated as LEM. Later on this was shortened to Lunar Module or LM. For this site I'm maintaining the original name, esp since that's what the toy was called as well of course.
Also note the antenna on the blue Apollo CSM shown above is missing its top half. It normally consists of 2 x 2 little dishes.
