Description

    A sensational highly-detailed Vostok model

    Soviet Vintage All-Metal Vostok Spacecraft Model on Base Engraved with the Date of Yuri Gagarin's History-Making Flight. This is absolutely mind-blowing in its quality, size, and detailed workmanship. With a weight of approximately 8.5 pounds, it stands 11" tall and 10.5" deep (not including the antenna projections) with a 5.75" diameter base on which is engraved "BOCTOK/ CCCP/ 12 ПРЕЛЬ 1961r" (Vostok/ USSR/ April 12, 1961). This particular model has been on display at a number of space and science conferences and exhibitions of Russian Space Exploration and is one of only a few custom-made at Energia Space Corporation, the result of several months' work. This is an exact copy of the spaceship that carried the first man into space (Gagarin, Vostok 1), the first full day mission (Titov, Vostok 2), the first simultaneous flight of two manned spacecraft (Nikolayev, Vostok 3 & Popovich, Vostok 4), the longest solo orbital flight (Bykovsky, Vostok 5), and the first woman in space (Tereshkova, Vostok 6). A model worthy of any personal or institutional collection. You may never find another like this one. Excellent.
