DescriptionProject Gemini McDonnell Spacecraft Model on Base by Topping, with Numbered Certificate. A 1/30 scale model, 5.25" tall x 3" in diameter on a 7" x 5" x 1" wooden base. Behind the capsule is a clear plastic model of St. Louis's Gateway Arch, 5.5" tall. There is a metal plaque in front that reads: "McDonnell Aircraft Corporation/ St. Louis, Mo/ Project Gemini 1961-1966". Originally these were made for McDonnell by the Topping Model Company in 1963 to be used as gifts to various VIPs When Topping went out of business, Precise Models bought their inventory and destroyed the molds for these as per McDonnell's request. In 2007, seventy-nine of these were discovered sitting in a warehouse, finished, and offered to collectors. Included with the lot is a certificate numbered 12/79 giving all these details. Excellent.
