Description

    Space Shuttle Orbiter Wooden Scale Model Directly from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Paul Weitz, Certified and Signed. A nicely-detailed 14" long x 5.75" tall x 9.5" across the wings painted model with attached decals. Included is a stylish wooden base with a 4.75" x 6.75" x 4.25" tall (making it 9" tall overall) triangular-shaped base with an engraved brass plate, "PAUL J. WEITZ". Weitz was commander of STS-6, the sixth overall shuttle mission and the first flight of Challenger, in April 1983. Extremely fine condition, the bottom tailpiece is separating slightly along the glue line but is still firmly attached.

    Weitz has certified this model on the base: "From my/ personal collection/ Paul Weitz/ PLT, SL-I, CDR, STS-6".

    Included with this lot is a handwritten and signed Letter of Certification from Paul Weitz on his personal letterhead, stating: "To whom it may concern- This model of a Space Shuttle Orbiter was presented to me in the early days of the Shuttle program. It has been in my possession ever since, and is from my personal collection of space memorabilia."

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
