In very good condition, with left tail fin detached but present; chips and cracks to underside of model, namely where model is mounted to base; a crack to base of right tail fin; and the detached tail fin chipped with some small fragments missing. Accompanied by a large hardshell storage briefcase, which measures 42.5″ x 24.5″ x 8″. The X-30 NASP National Aero-Space Plane was a conceptual single-stage-to-orbit spacecraft that never made it to the prototype phase as the program was canceled in the early 1990s after years of development. It was to be a scram-jet based aircraft, with a maximum speed of Mach 8.
