Description

The imposing Saturn 1B rocket

Vintage 1:96 scale engineering model of the Saturn 1B rocket. The model stands approximately 26″ tall, and features the first two stages and the uppermost payload section, with window for viewing small lunar module. The model is set on a 5.5″ diameter base with affixed plate and small figurine. In very good to fine condition, with expected wear from use and storage, including: bending to one rocket fin and some wear and scuffing to paint; the upper portion of the model is slightly wobbly between the Instrument Unit and the Lunar Module window. From the personal collection of Charlie Dry, a former Apollo test astronaut and research engineer and senior scientific analyst at NASA. An exceptional early replica of the imposing Saturn rocket—a magnificent display piece.
