As difficult as it is to believe, July 20, 2009 will mark the 40th Anniversary of man greatest achievement, the Apollo 11 Lunar landing.
This anniversary will be a major highlight of NASA year long 50th Anniversary celebration which lasts through October 2009.
The air fix reissues 1/144 scale Apollo Saturn V and Russian Vostok this year, and Revell also reissues 1/144 Apollo V and a lot of spaceships Kit.
How about the Trumpeter?
Trumpeter has been issuing terrific model subjects in their recent past.
Now arrives the eagerly awaited 1/144 Scale Soviet N-1 Launch Vheicle!
The N1 was a very large rocket, standing 105 metres tall (345 feet) — among the world’s largest launch vehicles, second only to the Saturn V in height, mass and payload.
Kit contains a complete N1 rocket, service and umbilical structures, and launch platform, which has the flame deflection structure.
Please refer to Trumpeter’s site for details.
It is a joke of April Fool of course.
An actual photograph becomes the following.
