Tremendous full-scale all metal replica of the Sputnik 1 satellite, measuring approximately 23″ in diameter, with four removable antennae, each able to telescope to approximate lengths of 8´ and 9.5´ to accommodate for display purposes. In fine condition. A similar, if less detailed, example—which was made by the same craftsman of the here-offered piece—can be seen hanging at the Neil Armstrong Museum. As a detailed model of the first artificial earth satellite, this life-sized example exists as a true must-have for serious space aficionados.
Due to the size, weight, and/or fragile nature of this item, we ask that you call RR Auction for a shipping quote.
