    Description

    Disneyland - TWA Moonliner Rocket Model by Scott Alexander (Walt Disney, c. 2000s). Beginning in 1955 through 1962, the TWA Moonliner was part of the first futuristic exhibit located in Disneyland's Tomorrowland. It was also an early example of modern product placement advertising by TWA's Howard Hughes teaming up with Walt Disney as the Moonliner's sponsor. At 76' tall, it was the tallest structure in the theme park, 8' taller than the Sleeping Beauty Castle! It was designed by Disney Legend Inductee, John Hench (1908 - 2004). Here's an amazing 1:24 scale model of the original. The model was created by Scott Alexander, a noted motion picture industry miniature model maker whose credits include the Batman films, Titanic, and King Kong. The model is made of high-quality polyurethane resin. The cockpit canopy is a brass casting. The grating for the light trench is photo-etched metal. The rocket is held in position by buttons that lock into the feet. The legs are removable, useful for shipping and storage. The rocket stands a very impressive 40" on a triangle shaped base of almost 15". It cannot be overstated just how cool this is! The model is in Very Good condition. Hand-made in limited quantity.
