Impressive NASA-owned 1:100 scale model of the International Space Station (ISS) by Al Malpass, disassembled and housed in its original wooden 23.5 x 14 x 12 storage box; the ISS measures approximately 43 x 26.5 x 22 when fully assembled. The model contains all accessories, such as solar panels and assembly instructions, and includes the Space Shuttle Columbia, Lockheed Martin X-33 space plane, and Soyuz and Progress spacecraft. Model components measure between 3 x 3 (Progress) and 20.75 x 2 (Integrated Truss Structure), with the original base bearing two affixed plaques and measuring 11 x 21. The wooden storage box is stamped "16" and bears two affixed NASA 'meatball' stickers. In very good to fine condition, with some curling to adhesive labels, and the metal assembly pins missing from two panels. Truly impressive in size, this is an incredibly detailed and clean model enhanced by its original assembly instructions—full replicas of the International Space Station remain quite rare, with this being an exceedingly desirable complete example. Due to the size and/or fragile nature of this item, special packing and shipping options will apply. Please call RR Auction for a quote.
