1960s Usn Lockheed Ballistic Missile System Polaris A2 A3 Desk Model For Sale
This is a very cool 1960s vintage desk model of the Polaris A2 and A3 missiles. The model was built by the Lockheed Model Shop in Sunnyvale, CA. The missiles are aluminum and painted black and white. They are 10 1/2 inches tall. The varnish is peeling off of the wood base. Each missile has 4 detailed thrusters (?) on the bottom. The paint is cracking a little, see pictures. Pretty darn cool!These are two U.S. submarine-launched ballistic missile models of
unknown scale. The smaller one is the Polaris A-2, which carried one nuclear warhead, had
a range of 1,700 miles, and was deployed during the 1960s and 1970s.
The larger missile is the Polaris A-3, which carried up to six nuclear
warheads, had a range of nearly 2,900 miles, and was deployed from the
late 1960s into the early 1980s.
