Large 1:10 Phobos Mars 2 engineering prototype model with every details of the original space probe, made in 1988.  There were only two other similar contractor models made at the time with both currently in leading Russian museums. The size is 45”x22”x14”, comes with own metal container.

The Phobos program was an unmanned space mission consisting of two probes launched by the Soviet Union to study Mars and its moons Phobos and Deimos.

Phobos 2 was launched on July 12, 1988, and entered orbit on January 29, 1989. Phobos 2 operated nominally throughout its cruise and Mars orbital insertion phases on January 29, 1989, gathering data on the Sun, the interplanetary medium, Mars, and Phobos. Phobos 2 investigated Mars’s surface and atmosphere and returned 37 images of Phobos with a resolution of up to 40 meters.

Theories trying to explain the mysterious monolith on the Martian satellite accumulated throughout the years. Renowned scientist Dr. Isaac Asimov wrote a story where he suggested that Phobos was an abandoned alien Ship from the distant past, that was captured by the gravity of the Red Planet.
