Lunar Module in Adelaide

Apparently displayed in Adelaide around 1970. Anybody know anything more about this?

Edit. I've changed the second image to one that has been cleaned up.

Is this the one that is in storage at MAAS Sydney? It did the rounds of the states then was out the front of the MAAS Main Building in Harris Street Sydney until early 80's

Here's what the Powerhouse Museum has on the model. Not much information I'm afraid. I know Kerrie Dougherty who used to work there. I'll ask her if she knows anything.

I've learned that the model was made in India! Unfortunately, this historic model was scrapped.
