Description

North American Aviation model of the Apollo spacecraft

Rare vintage 1:40 scale model of an Apollo Command Service Module and Lunar Module created by the Space and Information Systems Division at North American Aviation, Inc. The model measures 27.5″ tall, with the lunar module adaptor measuring 6.5″ in diameter, and consists of the service module, the command module, the lunar module, and the launch escape system. The model is set upon a circular wooden base, 9.5″ in diameter, with affixed plate: “Apollo Vehicle Configuration for Lunar Landing Mission.” Includes its original 26.25 x 19.25 x 8.75 North American Aviation shipping suitcase, with the handle side featuring an affixed Rockwell International Corporation label and metal nameplate. In very good to fine condition, with expected wear from use and storage, including: scattered scuffing, chips, and soiling, and the lunar module nozzle slightly bent. The suitcase bears considerable wear and soiling, with latches in unknown working order. A scarce example of an Apollo CM/LM model that remains highly sought-after by collectors—an impressive replica of the vehicle that carried humans to the moon. Due to the size and/or fragile nature of this item, special packing and shipping options will apply.
