Vintage 1:10 scale model of a Gemini capsule, used by NASA as part of an outreach program during the late 1960s and early 1970s. The black model measures approximately 18″ tall and depicts two Gemini astronauts seated inside the capsule with a central instrument panel. The capsule is set upon a 10″ diameter metallic base, and includes its original wooden 12 x 21.25 x 11.75 storage box. The top and one side of the box features white stenciling, "M7/10," as well as an Airborne shipping sticker. The top carrying handle bears the original green and blue tags. In very good to fine condition, with expected wear from use and storage. A highly appealing educational model relating to the exciting early days of space travel—such large vintage Gemini models with intact passengers remain extremely sought-after.
