It’s interesting to note the development of the Moon vehicles at this point. By 1964, most of the major changes to the CSM and LEM had occurred  with only minor tweaking left in the coming months. The most notable one here is the circular EVA hatch on the front of the LEM, originally intended to dock with the CSM after ascent from the lunar surface. This was eventually changed to the rectangular, EVA-only hatch due to weight constraints. Also, the CSM is of the Block I variant that was being promoted more than the Lunar Block II vehicle.
