The base is built onto two baseplates that are supposed to represent a crater. It consists of a blue building, a launch rack for the spacecraft and the monorail track. The building contains one room with two seats, a table and two beds. On its roof are several antennas, including a large dish antenna on a turntable. On one of the interior walls is a viewscreen (or a painting) that shows a rocket prior to launch and an astronaut in the foreground. This screen was printed onto the wall piece and not a sticker.

The spacecraft has an open cockpit and two rocket engines.
