    Description

    Apollo 13: Saturn V Rocket 1/144 Model Signed on the First Stage by James Lovell with a Fred Haise Signature Mounted on the Wooden Base. A 32.5" tall (overall) plastic model on 6" x 6" x 2" wooden base. It is signed in felt tip: "James Lovell/ Apollo 13" and "Best Wishes/ Fred Haise/ Apollo 13 LMP". Various mission-related medals and pins have been mounted on the base, one is loose. This model was used in a PBS television documentary titled "Bob Truax: The Navy's Rocket Man" by the producer Dr. Elliott H. Haimoff. During the documentary this model was shown and signed afterwards by Lovell. Our consignor bought this signed model directly from Haimoff. Lovell admired Truax, a fellow midshipman/ rocket fanatic, and was inspired by him to become an astronaut. A screen shot from the documentary is included. Overall extremely fine.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
