Rare tooling master for the contractor's model of a black Rockwell X-30 single-stage-to-orbit (SSTO) spaceplane, 1/50th scale, measuring 35.75″ x 17″, with included 7.75″ x 8.75″ metal base and hook capable of suspending model to a height of 15″. In fine condition, with upper wing detached but present, and capable of being easily fixed. When a model is created, the first part out of the new molds is saved as a 'tooling master' to make new molds when needed, as the original master is often damaged when the first mold is removed. The Rockwell X-30 was an advanced technology demonstrator project for the National Aero-Space Plane (NASP), part of a United States project to create a SSTO spacecraft and passenger spaceliner. The project was canceled in 1993 before a prototype was completed.
