Soviet LOK Moon Ship (1970) 1/48 Scale Model Kit:

The Soviet 7K-LOK, or simply "LOK," was the Soviet Union's answer to America's Apollo spacecraft. Unlike Apollo, which carried three astronauts, the LOK was designed to carry only two; one would stay with the mothership in lunar orbit while the second would descend to the lunar surface aboard the LK Lander.

The LOK also differed from the Apollo spacecraft in that it did not have a transfer tunnel leading from the command module to the lunar lander with which it was docked; this would have required the lunar astronaut to move between vehicles via EVA.

The LOK flew three times between 1970 and 1972, all unmanned. The first flight took it only into Earth orbit. The second two, intended to send the craft to the moon, were aborted when their N-1 boosters failed. Ultimately, with America continuing to score points with their Apollo moon landings, the Soviets chose to abandon their lunar program and stick to simpler missions in low earth orbit.
