Original one-of-a-kind 1/1 scale precision model of a Mercury-Redstone Space Capsule. The outside of the capsule has "United States" in white capital letters and a vivid American flag. "Glenn" is painted in black in capital letters inside and the majority of the detailed internal instrument panels are also included, though one panel is missing. The impressively gigantic red escape tower made to sit atop the capsule is additionally present. This is an extremely rare and desirable find since models of this size and caliber are almost never available for private ownership and usually only exhibited in Air & Space museums. Capsule is believed to have been likely purchased at the Charles Bell Estate Auction in Florida. Item is sold as is and is available for in-person inspection in Woodland Hills, California.
Bidding note: as mentioned above, this item is currently stored in California, and the buyer is responsible for all shipping costs. RR Auction will help facilitate the relocation of this capsule. Please email Bobby@RRAuction.com for a shipping quote.
