Large exhibition-grade model Vostok Model

20 Nov

Uncommon and impressive Vostok model rocket. This 1:25 scale model is constructed from glass reinforced plastic, and metal. Made for exhibition purposes by NPO Energia in the 1993, the rocket stands 58″ tall and stands on an 11.25 x 11.25 wooden base for an overall height of 62.″ In fine condition. Vostok was a family of rockets derived from the Soviet R-7 Semyorka, designed for the human space flight program. The rocket was used to launch the first artificial satellite, Sputnik, and the first man in space Yuri Gagarin. The Vostok series flew six times, with the last mission launching Valentina Tereshkova into orbit in 1963. RR Auction COA.
