S.L.S Space launch system Block 1 crew version at 1/144 by Martins Models,

Recommended Posts

HI,

Thought you might like to see this,its NASA,S planned new ride,this is the Orion crew capsule and upper stage,build,with the larger 5 segment boosters. The vehicle is basically a stretched version of the shuttle tank,with 4 main engines.There is also a Block 0 one on paper,but its not certain that it will be built,as the Block 1 being the heavier version,is preferred.First flights are planned for Dec 2017?..

well heres the pics..

original plan to display the upper section as a seperate item,i have not decided which way to display them yet,?

Don,

Impressive, Mate.

Fed ex markings? really?

Do they do returns pickups too?

That desk is worryingly tidy, for you?

Like your Son's rocket. In the genes?
