DOCKED SALYUT-SOYUZ MODEL.
Large model of docked Salyut 6-Soyuz 26, made for Khrunichev Space Center. Metal and resin. 17 inches long x 9 high x 13 wide including solar panels. On lacquered wood base, with engraved plaque reading (in Russian) "Orbital Space Station Salyut 6 — Spacecraft Soyuz 26. The First Expedition. December 10, 1977—March 16, 1978."

Salyut 6 was the Soviet space station, prior to Mir, and was in operation for almost five years. Soyuz 26 took the first long-duration crew to Salyut. A problem with the docking hatch had prevented Soyuz 25 from connecting successfully. An extremely detailed model.
