Atlas V NROL-39 paper model

Here’s an update to my Atlas V paper model collection with the addition of the NROL-39 model in 1:144 scale. This mission was successfully launched on Dec 6, 2013 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. I was very fortunate to be in San Diego that night for business purposes and was able to watch the launch via NASA TV and to follow the rocket’s trail in the night sky at that distance.
Here are some pictures of the model, which is already available at my website on the Atlas V page.
