TianGong-1 & Spacecraft ShenZhou-8 - GWH 1:48

Recommended Posts

Hi mates,
And just to do something new ... I decided to launch myself into the construction of the first Chinese space station TianGong-1 and the Shenzhou-8 module.


Tiangong-1 ( literally: 'Heavenly Palace 1" or "Celestial Palace 1') was China's first prototype space station. It orbited Earth from September 2011 to April 2018, serving as both a manned laboratory and an experimental testbed to demonstrate orbital rendezvous and docking capabilities during its two years of active operational life.

A quick look inside the box:

Nice work so far! I built this model several years ago; I also have the Chang Zheng 2F launch vehicle to the same scale in my stash (a huge model, around 130 cm tall) which if I ever get round to building it would make an impressive delay alongside the spacecraft itself.
