Description


Vintage 1:10 scale model of an Apollo capsule, used by NASA as part of an outreach program during the late 1960s and early 1970s. The off-white model measures approximately 19″ tall and depicts three Apollo astronauts seated inside the capsule with various instrument panels. The capsule is set upon a 14″ diameter metallic base, and includes its original wooden 17 x 20 x 17.25 storage box. The top of the box features white stenciling, "Apollo 1/10 scale," a NASA 'meatball' logo sticker and an Airborne shipping sticker, a faded shipping label, and the top carrying handle bears a small portion of the original green tag; the sides of the box bear white ink notations, "M 14/2." In very good to fine condition, with expected wear from use and storage, including: light scuffing and soiling to capsule exterior, and the support foam material inside storage box disintegrating. A highly appealing educational model relating to the exciting early days of space travel—such large vintage Apollo models with intact passengers remain extremely sought-after.
