I år så kommer det en del intressanta återutgivningar och först ut är några med anknytning till NASA och med anledning av att det till sommaren är 40år sedan första månpromenaden
Först ut är Apollo Spacecraft I skala 1:32
The Apollo Spacecraft that transported Astronauts to the moon for the first time consisted of two parts, the Command Module and the Service Module. The Command Module contained quarters for the three men, as well as extensive electronics, communications and guidance systems. It was supplied with oxygen and electric power from the Service Module, which also contained the main propulsion engine for attaining lunar orbit and for firing into the return trip. After completing the entire mission to and around the moon and back toward earth together, the two modules separated just minutes before entering the atmosphere leaving only the Command Module to return to earth.
The gold color on this model simulates the gold foil covering of the actual Command Module. Interior details such as figures of the three Astronauts, instrument and control panels, structural members, parachutes, oxygen and hydrogen tanks, and fuel cells may be viewed through transparent sections.
Sedan kommer Lunar Landing i skala 1:48
"That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." On July 20, 1969, after a three-day, quarter-million mile journey from earth, Neil A. Armstrong and Col. Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin, Jr. became the first humans to set foot on the moon while Lt. Michael Collins remained in the orbiting command module.
This kit contains scale models of the astronauts dressed in their moon-walking suits, their photographic and scientific equipment, the American flag which they planted, the lunar module and a display base molded to simulate the moon's surface, complete with footprints.
The model itself is 6" in height (15.24cm) and contains 78 parts for assembly. Gold foil covering and authentic waterslide decals included. Molded in white and gray.
Samt under januari så kommer även Saturn V Rocket i skala 1:144
The APOLLO SATURN V was used in the Apollo manned spacecraft program of the late ‘60s and ‘70s. Weighing more than 3,000 tons, it developed over one million pounds of thrust and was the largest and most awesome rocket ever created. On the morning of July 16, 1969, Astronauts Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and Michael Collins were perched atop a mighty SATURN V launch vehicle in preparation for their historic journey to the barren lunar surface.
Detailed service and lunar landing modules plus three stages can be assembled separately, then locked together to build one unit. They can then be separated again to show individual modules. Launching pad display stand. Authentic decal markings. Molded in white, silver and yellow.
Vi får se när vi får möjlighet att lyfta på locket och se vad det finns för inehåll!
