Description


Vintage model of a large Improved Thor rocket made by Topping Models, standing 23.5″ tall, set on a 5″ diameter base with affixed plate. In fine condition, with a dent to nose, some slight scuffing and wear to body and graphics. From the personal collection of Charlie Dry, a former Apollo test astronaut and research engineer and senior scientific analyst at NASA. Manufactured by Topping, one of the most recognizable names in classic NASA and defense contractor models, this impressive Thor rocket replica represents a significant space launch vehicle that aided in the development of the Delta launch system and was implemented in the pivotal Agena rocket upper stage. A decidedly uncommon rocket model from the early days of space exploration.

Due to the size, weight, and/or fragile nature of this item, we ask that you call RR Auction for a shipping quote.
