Description

Massive 1:20 scale model of the Apollo Command/Service and Lunar Module made by the Graphic Engineering and Models Division at the Marshall Space Flight Center. The spacecraft separates into four parts— the service and command modules, and the lunar module ascent and descent stages— and when fully assembled stands approximately 34.5″ in height and extends to an impressive 31.5″ in length. The black lacquer-finish base, which roughly weighs 13 lbs, measures 24″ x 12″ x 1″, with underside bearing an affixed label from the Graphic Engineering and Models Division at the George C. Marshall Space Flight Center, as well as a step-by-step pictorial assembly guide. In very good to fine condition, with some scuffing and several pieces detached but present, namely three of the landing pads, and a missing RCS thruster; also features significant wear to the descent stage, in particular the struts and truss assemblies. In spite of its flaws, this represents the largest model of the iconic Apollo spacecraft that we have ever offered; a patient hand could easily return this model to its former glory and cement this as a true collection centerpiece.
