Model Kit, Rocket, Saturn V, 1:144

Model Kit, Rocket, Saturn V, 1:144

     

This unassembled plastic model kit, made by Monogram Models and copyrighted 1968, is and still sealed in plastic. It allowed its purchaser to create a scale model of an Apollo Saturn V launch vehicle (1:144 scale) using the enclosed plastic pieces and instructions. The model's packaging emphasized the realistic nature of the toy, including the fact that all stage of the non-flying rocket model could separate. The artist's conception on the box cover of a Saturn V rocket during stage separation above the Earth was intended to fire the purchaser's imagination about the rocket depicted in the kit.

Rocket model collector G. Harry Stine donated this model to the National Collections in 1973.
