United Technologies Center Rocket Motor

This item is currently up for auction on eBay. Unlike the actual (Altair?) motor that I found for sale on eBay recently, this one appears to be strictly a model, perhaps of an actual production motor. It does seem to be proportionally similar to the Altair motor. The model is described as being 15 inches tall with the embedded nozzle measuring 2 7/8 inches. It's not clear if the nozzle measurement is length or diameter. The current asking price seems pretty high, but as far as models go this one seems pretty nice.
