Description


Stunning 1:5 scale custom handmade model of the Luna 9 spacecraft, measuring approximately 12 x 20 x 7, constructed of metal with elements of plastic composite, produced as an exclusive project presentation model by the Lavochkin Research and Production Association. Presented on a black base with engraved plaque. In fine condition.

On February 3, 1966, the Luna 9 became the first spacecraft to achieve a soft landing on the moon and transmit photographic data back to Earth. Over its three-day period of operation, the Luna 9 returned a total of 27 individual images of the lunar surface. Additionally, its success offered proof that the surface could support the weight of a lander, as some predicted that it would sink into a loose layer of dust. With extreme attention to details and accuracy, this is a museum-quality model of a significant spacecraft and this year will be the fiftieth anniversary of the Luna-9 landing. Oversized.

Considering the size and weight of this item, additional shipping charges will apply; please contact Bobby@RRAuction.com for more details.
