As I understand it, there are just three complete Soyuz spacecraft (with all three modules — BO-SA-PAO) on display in the West. These are:
  • The Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (ASTP) Soyuz at the National Air and Space Museum - reported to be a model, assembled using assorted spare parts etc.

  • The 7K-OK at the National Space Centre in the UK - reported to be a flight-certified article

  • There also exists a Soyuz at Cite d'Espace in Toulouse, France alongside a Soyuz capsule that is open to sit in. However, the authenticity and origin of these two appear unknown.
Does anyone have any more specific information on the actual history behind these three units, or any other complete flight sets (i.e. not just the flown descent module) on display outside Russia?

There is a complete ASTP displayed at the Cosmosphere, but I believe it is a replica.
