Space Shuttle Mock Up

Recommended Posts

My Uncle, an antique dealer, gave me this wooden model what appears to be a shuttle.  Looks like its at least 40 years old.

I am going to sand and repaint.

 

What is it?

  • Anyone ever see anything like this? 
  • Any data on origin? 
  • Aerospace firm? 
  • Appears to be aerospace schwag for display on desk. 
  • A scale model envisioned by the builder?
  • Project working towards an Eagle Scout?

The holes are for display mounts.  Curious what the #4 means, its a decal.

Rear holes are for engine nozzles.  I have them.  You can also see original color, looks like FS Gull Grey.

Some filling and sanding will be needed to repair the "fin"
