Very detailed papercraft Apollo 13 lunar module "Aquarius"
Ironically, NASA's Apollo 13 Moon landing mission from 1970 is famous only because it went terribly wrong: during the approach of the Moon, one of the oxygen tanks exploded, causing critical damage to the spacecraft... ("Houston, we have a problem...")
The improvisation of a new return plan of the crippled spacecraft following the near disaster became one of NASA's greatest successes though, when they succeeded in bringing the astronauts safely back to Earth!
