Description


Incomplete vintage model of the Saturn 1B rocket standing approximately 20″ tall and featuring the first two stages, with upper payload section no longer present, designed by the Graphic Engineering and Models Division at NASA's George C. Marshall Space Center. The model is set on a replacement 5.5 x 5.5 x 1.25 wooden base with affixed plate. In very good condition, with slight scuffing and some crackling to paint; chipping to upper rim and missing fin to second stage; and a missing bottom fin to first stage. The actual Saturn IB rocket stood 224 feet tall. It had two stages that are clearly marked on this model. It utilized eight liquid-fuel engines in its first stage and one liquid-fuel engine in its second. Altogether, there were nine of them launched—all successfully.
