    Description

    X-33: Lockheed Martin Suborbital Spaceplane Contractor's Model. A wooden contractor's model from Lockheed Martin measuring approximately 9" long, with an 8" wingspan, and 5" tall while sitting upon custom stand. The X-33 was developed for NASA in the 1990's as part of the Space Launch Initiative program. The desire was to build a craft that could reach Earth orbit in a single stage. If a single-stage-to-orbit craft proved successful the hope was that the X-33 would be the first commercial spacecraft. Unfortunately, due to design issues and a decline in demand for commercial satellites, the project was cancelled in 2001. Some light toning and scratching throughout consistent with age. Overall very fine.

    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.
