SOYUZ ROCKET &
In 1961, the first manned spaceflight in history was recorded on the Vostok 1, and ever since then Russia has continued to send man into space with their modern rockets for over 50 years. One of these rockets is the the Soyuz rocket and spacecraft, which is currently the only manned vehicle capable of sending astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS). This famous rocket has now been converted into a 1/150th scale plastic model with its transport train included.
The model allows you to recreate all of the processes from the rollout all the way to landing at the ISS: transportation to the launch site, lift-off preparations, the separation of the multistage boosters and the deployment of the Soyuz spacecraft. Recreate the drama of a lift-off right in your very own collection with this complete rocket kit!

The Soyuz Rocket is rolled out on a special transport train designed specifically for the rocket, carried horizontally to the launch site. The plastic model includes both the complete rocket together with the transport train all preserved in 1/150 scale, making the width of the wheels just 9mm in size. The model can not only be displayed as the complete rocket, but also laid horizontally on the train during transport (wheels do not move).
Once the rocket arrives on site, the rear lifts on the transport train set the rocket upright and into launch position. On the plastic model, this lift is articulated in the same manner as the real vehicle and comes with a special base that allows you to choose between displaying the rocket in horizontal transport mode or in the upright mode.
The back of the rocket looks like a bundle of rocket engines tied together. A total of 32 rocket nozzles including the Vernier thruster included for fine adjustments to the attitude or velocity of a spacecraft.
Perhaps the most iconic part of the Soyuz rocket's cluster launch design. The backshot of the multiple rocket engines on the back is one of the many highlights of the plastic model. The model faithfully captures the first, second and third stages of the cluster launch, with each of the separating parts carefully detailed. Enjoy each of the stages of the launch as the rocket takes off from Earth into the starry skies and beyond.
The Soyuz spacecraft is the final deployment stage of the rocket, where the astronauts ride inside to reach the International Space Station. The product includes the Soyuz spacecraft within the fairing parts of the rocket. In addition, solar panel parts and a special display stand are included to dispplay the spacecraft in its final deployed state as it heads to the ISS.
The product is a 1/150 scale plastic model, with the built rocket approximately 32cm in length. The kit makes use of multiple different cast colors, allowing you to create a reliable replica that can capture all the processes of the launch simply by putting the parts together. The model is made from PS, allowing for easy customization and painting of the finished product.
