1:400 CZ-2F-T1 Rocket

SKU: 500756400

Article number: 500756400
Product: 1:400 CZ-2F-T1 Rocket

China is one of the newest entrants in the space race, with ambitious plans to establish a space station by 2020 and to be the third country to put man on the Moon by 2025. The manned orbital carrier rocket that China is currently relying upon for its space program is the Long March family. Indeed, one of these members, the Long March 2F (or CZ-2F), was the first rocket to put a Chinese taikonaut in space. The CZ-2F is a man-rated two-stage design, and it’s a development of the Long March 2E with structural modifications to allow carriage of heavier Shenzhou capsules (its maximum payload is 8,400kg). It also has more redundant systems to enhance safety. More recently, a CZ-2F rocket launched the Tiangong 1 (the name translates as "heavenly palace") space laboratory module into low earth orbit on 29 September 2011.

CZ-2F-T1 blasted off from the South Launch Site of the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre. Later, an unmanned Shenzhou spacecraft twice rendezvoused and docked with Tiangong 1 in early November, an important step in China’s aim to establish a fully functioning space station. This space lab will deorbit in 2013, to be replaced by newer modules.

Dragon Space Collection allows modelers to celebrate this historic milestone in China’s technological march through a brand new 1/400 scale model of the rocket system. This rocket represents Chinese technological prowess and the nation’s space aspirations, and the CZ-2F-T1, which is a completely new tooling, does the subject justice. Dragon has released many notable 1/400 scale models of systems such as the Atlas, Titan, Delta, H-IIA and Ariane, and now the Chinese type is proudly represented too. By acquiring this Chinese CZ-2F-T1, collectors will be able to field a very international range of space rockets.

1:400 Titan IIIE w/Launch Pad "SLC-41"

SKU: 500756342

Features:
- Highly detailed
- True to 1/400
- Highly collectible
- High quality diecast construction

The Titan family of expendable rockets was extremely successful, with 368 launches between 1959 and 2005. The 48m-long Titan IIIE, sometimes referred to as the Titan III-Centaur, was used a total of seven times. The name Centaur stemmed from the fact that a Centaur-D upper stage was added to boost the system’s performance. This three-stage rocket was instrumental in launching NASA’s two Voyager probes to Jupiter and Saturn, as well as the two Viking missions. The latter put instrumented landers on the surface of Mars. The Titan IIIE was used from 1974-77, with all missions blasting off from Space Launch Complex 41 (SLC-41) at Cape Canaveral in Florida.

Now collectors and space enthusiasts can recreate the dramatic launch of a Titan IIIE with Dragon’s newest 1/400 scale model. The new Dragon Space miniature shows an impressive Titan IIIE rocket positioned on its SLC-41 launch pad awaiting blastoff from Cape Canaveral. The pre-painted model is highly accurate and is fully detailed, including correct sequences of markings. It comes with its special high-specific-impulse Centaur upper stage, which gives it a very different appearance to the Titan IIIC released previously. The metallic color of this upper stage is authentically reproduced. The model also features two huge strap-on solid rocket boosters. For folk who wish to feel the power of a Titan rocket launch, this is a must-have item!

1:400 Delta II Rocket"7925 Heavy"/Launch

SKU: 500756339

The USA planned to phase out all expendable launch vehicles (ELV) after the Space Shuttle entered service. However, the Challenger accident of 1986 changed all that, and the Delta program was restarted. Termed Delta II, these rockets have made nearly 150 successful launches since 1989, making it the most reliable system in service. Originally built by McDonnell Douglas, production for both US government and commercial entities is now the responsibility of United Launch Alliance (ULA). As an ELV, each rocket can only be launched once. Among the Delta II’s missions are launching GPS Block II satellites, Iridium satellites, and several Mars missions for NASA.

Delta rockets, including the 7000 series that includes both "Light’ and "Heavy" variants, are given a four-digit code depending on their exact configuration. For example, a "Delta II 7925 Heavy" refers to a vehicle that has an RS-27A-engined first stage, nine graphite-epoxy motor (GEM) boosters, a second stage powered by an Aerojet AJ10 engine, and a Payload Assistance Module (PAM) third stage. The "Heavy" designation refers to the fact that the system employs the larger GEM-46 boosters that were originally intended for the Delta III. Dragon Space series has launched a fine model of such a Delta II 7925 Heavy rocket. Made to 1/400 scale, it accurately replicates this common launch configuration. The model is sharply molded and finished in the correct colors. The model also comes with its associated launch platform, creating an instant miniature scene that will impress viewers.
