This is a hand made metal  model of the Russian Zond-5 Lunar
Fly-by spacecraft built by the NPO Energia Company and launched in September of 1968.
The model measures 8" x 7" x 5".

It is an authentic piece
of Russian Space History.

 Our Zond-5 model is one of only a few that were custom made for the Energia Space Corporation. 

  The Zond-5 spacecraft is essentially a beefed-up Soyuz vehicle without the round Orbital Module at the front.  A collar was added in it's place to allow for the mounting of a high gain antenna and attachment of the spacecraft to the launch shroud.

In this picture
you can see the underside of the Zond-5 Spacecraft.
    The Zond- 5 was launched from a Tyazheliy Sputnik in earth parking orbit to make scientific studies during a lunar flyby and to return to the Earth. On September 18, 1968, the spacecraft flew around the Moon. The closest distance was 1,950 km. High quality pictures of the Earth were taken at a distance of 90,000 km. A biological payload of turtles, wine flies, meal worms, plants, seeds, bacteria, and other living matter was included in the flight. On September 21, 1968, the reentry capsule entered the Earth's atmosphere, braked aerodynamically, and deployed parachutes at 7 km. The capsule splashed down in the Indian ocean and was successfully recovered, safely returning the biological payload. It was announced that the turtles had lost about 10% of their body weight but remained active and showed no loss of appetite. The spacecraft was planned as a precursor to manned lunar spacecraft.
