An extremely scarce (Allyson Vought has the only other one I've seen) 1955 in-house model from the Douglas Aircraft Company, depicting a fanciful spaceliner. Its height is eleven inches; a tiny cloisonne Douglas logo is attached to the wood base. Scaled to a height of eighty feet and dressed in TWA livery, the design became the centerpiece of Disneyland's "Rocket to the Moon" attraction in Tomorrowland.
