Description

This model of the Gemini 12 capsule, reproduced at 1/25th the original size, has been signed on its base by crewmembers James Lovell and Buzz Aldrin. The hatch doors are removable, as pictured, and once detached reveal a wonderfully detailed interior. This model was signed for the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation in celebration of Gemini 12's 45th Anniversary, a fact which is noted by a plaque affixed to the model's included black stand, which states:

"Gemini XII 45th Anniversary
November 5, 2011
Presented by:
Astronaut Scholarship Foundation"

There is a small chip on the edge of the model base — this chip is covered when the model is seated. A certificate of authenticity signed by Astronaut Scholarship Foundation Executive Director Tammy Knowles accompanies this lot.
