Book Nick Proach to speak at your next Function
Nick has very interesting stories to share at your conference, meeting or other event!
Nick Proach has been building scale models since he was 11 years old, graduating to space modeling at the time of the Apollo 11 lunar landing in 1969. The real adventure began in 1971 when Nick built a small model of the Lunar Rover prior to the flight of Apollo 15 to the moon in late July of that year. He told CTV about it and before he realized it he was building the entire Apollo 15 landing site for the network’s use during their coverage of the moon mission.
What followed were a number of projects throughout the 1970’s and 80’s, some of which seemed impossible for a guy who just worked out of his backroom or his garage.
In 1985 he built 2 automated Anik communications satellites for Telesat Canada, which showed how the satellite deployed in space.
For Expo 86 in Vancouver, B.C., Nick built a 16 foot long model of the original U.S Space Station along with a 28.5 foot model of a Canadian communications satellite. Both models were featured in the fairs’ Canadian Pavilion.
In 1994, Nick put his knowledge of space flight and space hardware with his expertise of model making together to form Proach Models, a company dedicated to space flight by creating the most detailed, most sought after museum and desktop model replicas of anything that flies or will fly in space.
Since then he has built or managed projects for NASA, SpaceX, the U.S. Air Force, movies, museums, corporations, countless private collectors worldwide, and even former astronauts
Nick also toured many of the main U.S. Space facilities, and as a Space Flight Historian has a vast knowledge and library of records from all manned and unmanned spaceflights along with an extensive print and video library.
A former radio newsman and disc jockey, Nick makes his talks positive, inspiring and very informative.
