Default Chang'e 5-T1 and Manfred Memorial Moon Mission

Following the development of the Chang'e 4 (and Queqiao and Longjiangs), It's time for a second Chang'e Orbiter addon project which is Chang'e 5-T1 and the Manfred Memorial Moon Mission.

I have no idea how the M4 (Manfred Memorial Moon Mission) would look on the Orbiter simulator (as it is one of the tiniest spacecraft)

Any ideas on the Chang'e 5 T1 and the 4M spacecraft making lately?

Here is an image of Chang'e 5-T1's reentry capsule (Xiaofei)


It looks like a miniaturized Shenzhou capsule on the outside

Nice reference. Anyway, for the Manfred Memorial Moon Mission, it would use Spacecraft4.

It consisted of a DFH-3A "Chang'e 2 type" spacecraft with a mass of approximately 2,215 kg (including 1,065 kg of fuel)[10] carrying the Chang'e 5 return capsule with a mass of under 335 kg. The craft was launched by a Long March 3C rocket into a lunar free return trajectory. It looped behind the Moon and returned to Earth, with the return capsule testing the high speed atmospheric skip reentry. The DFH-3A "service module" remained in orbit around the Earth before being relocated via Earth-Moon L2 to lunar orbit by 13 January 2015, where it will use its remaining 800 kg of fuel to test maneuvers key to future lunar missions...
If this source from the Wiki is reliable, then the main spacecraft bus is identical in assembly to the earlier Chang'E 1 and 2 spacecraft topped by the small boilerplate return capsule called Xiaofei(?)

Code:
Chang'E 5-T1 (specifications)
   Bus: DFH-3A
   Mass (Launch): 2,550 kg
      Main spacecraft = 2,215 kg
      Xiaofei capsule = 335 kg
   Dimensions: (same size as Chang'E 1/2)

The Long March 3C's configuration however is a 2-booster version of the Long March 3B that launched Chang'E 4 in 2019
