Description


Vintage Apollo lunar module contractor’s model, made of injection-molded plastic and measuring approximately 6" tall and 10" across. The two-piece LM is removable from the base, separates into ascent and descent stages, and has numerous tiny projecting parts. Includes the original 10.25" diameter black base, with color logos of both Grumman and NASA, as well as the text "Lunar Module" printed near the edge; the base is signed in silver ink by nine Apollo astronauts, including: "Buzz Aldrin, Apollo XI LMP, ‘Eagle,’" "Gene Cernan, Apollo X—Snoopy, Apollo XVII—Challenger," "Dave Scott Apollo 9 CMP, Apollo 15 CDR, ‘Endeavour’—‘Falcon,’” "Charlie Duke, Apollo 16 LMP, Orion, Casper," "James Lovell, Apollo 8, 13, Aquarius, Odyssey," "Jim McDivitt, Apollo 9 CDR, 'Spider,'" "Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 LMP, Antares, Kittyhawk," "Alan Bean, Apollo 12 LMP, Intrepid—Yankee Clipper," and "Fred Haise, Apollo 13 LMP, Aquarius—Odyssey." In fine condition, with slight wear and scuffs to model and base. Accompanied by a CD of photos of the astronauts taken at time of signing, and a certificate of authenticity from Astronaut Central for the Aldrin signature. A rare vintage Apollo LM model with excellent display potential; these classic replicas often fall victim to missing parts and severe yellowing due to age and light exposure; this particular example boasts a desirable off-white color and appears to feature all of its original parts. A tremendous gathering of space pioneers all paying homage to their particular modules. Due to the size and/or fragile nature of this item, special packing and shipping options will apply.
