Nice to see that. I think I recall a thread years ago with the video above showing it's state at that time and it was terrible. Nice someone spent some love and affection on it.

I wonder if the Smithsonian will be interested in acquiring it.

I wonder how much is original, considering the bad shape it was in...

It will be on public display at Space Center Houston, the visitor center and museum adjacent to Johnson Space Center.

In fairness that means I'll never see it close up, but it's still been restored at least.

I mentioned above that it was going to Space Center Houston. It's there now. Here' the Yahoo! hoopla on that:
