A beautiful cast resin model that, luck has it, could also be a fantastic nose cone!
Martin Goldsack has introduced a new line of models based on the spacecraft designs of the 1950s as proposed by people like Wehrner von Braun, Fred Ordway, and Willy Ley, and seen in the artwork of Chesley Bonestell or Fred Freeman, "How the Future Was".
This model represents the classic type of spaceship depicted by many during the 1950s. The model comprises 20 resin parts, and stands 24cm high with a finspan of 10cm.
The kit includes decals for PanAm (both pre- and post-1955 logo), American Airlines (1950s and 60s versions), NASA, and NACA (forerunner of NASA), or of course you can use your own decals to create an individual shuttle. Just leaving the drawing board are decals of the Royal Space Force roundel as conceived by Ellis and Weston.
The Spaceship Type 1 can be mounted atop BT-60 or a 38mm motor tube with a little jiggery pokery. It's easy to rig the recovery harness so that it lands flat... or even tail down like it's supposed to!
More pictures asap!
