Scarce vintage 1:100 scale model of an Advanced Launch System (ALS) created by Rockwell International. The model measures 25″ tall, and features red NASA and dark blue USAF lettering to upper and lower stages. The model is set upon a circular wooden base, 7.75″ in diameter, with affixed plate: “1/100, Advanced Launch Systems, Rockwell International.” Includes its original 28 x 24 x 12 shipping suitcase, with “521” stenciled to top and bottom, and a color 11 x 14 Rockwell International poster of the ALS. In fine condition, with trivial scuffs to lower stage; the suitcase is in fine working order. The Advanced Launch System was a joint effort funded by the United States Air Force and NASA that operated from 1987 to 1990. The program’s aim was to develop a flexible, modular, heavy-lift, high rate space launch vehicle that could deliver payloads into Earth orbit at a tenth the cost of existing boosters.
