There is a story behind every space model we make.

Lauren Lyons from SpaceX describing a point about the Dragon II Crew Vehicle, using a model of the Dragon II built by Proach Models. The model was built in 1/48 scale, and casted from a mold where the masters used to make the mold were entirely 3D printed.

3 Heavy-lift Manned Space Launchers

3 Heavy-lift Manned Space Launchers

This photo illustrates the size comparisons of the 3 heavy-lift manned space launchers. From left to right, the Apollo Saturn V, the Space Shuttle stack and the Space Launch System. Models shown are 1/200 scale, with the Saturn V standing 23 1/2" tall.

Surveyor III

Surveyor III

This is a 1:7 model of Surveyor III. Its frame is made from brass which has been silver soldered and micro welded together. Most of its parts were resin cast. Proach Models has built 2 Surveyor III models in this scale. The one pictured here was built for Ron Shinkle of Texas, a private collector and good friend of Nick Proach. The other Surveyor was built for Apollo 12 astronaut Alan Bean, who visited the real Surveyor III when he walked on the moon in November of 1969.

Nick receiving a model base signed by Mercury astronaut Scott Carpenter at the Kennedy Space Center in November, 2011. Scott was the first astronaut Nick met during the Apollo Soyuz mission in July of 1975, and was fortunate to dine with Scott on a few special occasions in Toronto, Cleveland and the Kennedy Space Center.

Lunar Rover Vehicle

Lunar Rover Vehicle

This 1/7 scale Lunar Rover was built for Apollo 12 astronaut Alan Bean. The model measures almost 20 inches in length. Its frame, suspension, high-gain antenna and most of the lunar hand tools were built of brass and silver soldered. Other parts were made from plastic and cast resin. The fenders are molded fiberglass.

Nick and his J-mission 1:48 scale Apollo Saturn V with Apollo 17 commander Gene Cernan. Captain Cernan dropped by to say, "hi" at the Proach Models booth during SpaceFest VI in Pasadena, California in June, 2014.

GPS Satellites globe model

GPS Satellites globe model

A model of the Earth showing the orbital formation of Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites as they orbit the Earth. It was built for a traveling space exhibit in 2005.

Orion Spacecraft

Orion Spacecraft

This 1/100 scale model of the first test flight of NASA’s new Orion Spacecraft was built for Robert Pearlman of Collectspace. The model stands over 2 feet tall.

Saturn V

Saturn V

The all-up Saturn V in 1/25 scale, built for Guard Lee in Florida. This model stands almost 16 feet in height.

Rockets

Rockets

Models of the Mercury Redstone, Gemini-Titan II and the upper stage of an Apollo Saturn V are built in 1/25 scale. Redstone measured almost 3 feet tall, the GT-II over 4 ½ feet tall. The Apollo Saturn V upper stage section measured well over 5 feet tall.

Chandra X-Ray

Chandra X-Ray

A 1:48 scale model of the Chandra X-ray Observatory. It featured an opening aperture door to show the primary lenses of the observatory. 75 of these models were built for staff at TRW, now Northrop Grumman in California, who worked on the actual spacecraft. The original prototype is in the Proach Models Museum.

NEOSAT

NEOSAT

NEOSAT, or Near Earth Orbiting Satellite, was a concept satellite model built for the Canadian Armed Forces. The mission of the actual satellite was to spot asteroids and other major space debris coming too close to Earth. The model pictured here was built in 1:3 scale and measured almost 18 inches in length.

Surveyor III

Surveyor III

This is a 1:7 model of Surveyor III. Its frame is made from brass which has been silver soldered and micro welded together. Most of its parts were resin cast. Proach Models has built 2 Surveyor III models in this scale. The one pictured here was built for Ron Shinkle of Texas, a private collector and good friend of Nick Proach. The other Surveyor was built for Apollo 12 astronaut Alan Bean, who visited the real Surveyor III when he walked on the moon in November of 1969.
