Fantastic Plastic has released a 1/72 resin Experimental Reentry Vehicle (XRV) from the 1969 Sci-Fi drama "Marooned."

Modeled after actual lifting body designs being developed at the time, the XRV was intended to be a one-man test vehicle, but was quickly outfitted to carry four (including the pilot) when the Apollo-era Ironman One spacecraft got marooned in orbit after its retro rockets failed to fire.

"In the film, the XRV was launched into orbit aboard a Titan III-C rocket through the eye of a hurricane that was battering Cape Canaveral..
