MMS 1:16 scale model complete stack

On my previous post about the MMS 1:16 scale card model, I described how I became involved in this project. Here I now present the Atlas V 421 model and all 4 MMS spacecrafts in stack configuration that are now available at Goddard’s MMS website:

I was very fortunate for being invited to the actual Atlas V MMS launch on March 12, 2015 along with my family. Special thanks to Troy D. Cline from Goddard Space Flight Center for the invitation.

  1. Wow, Alfonso. That looks awesome. Lots of detail. Fascinating to see models in bigger size than your usual scales.
    Very nice job. And thanks for sharing those photos of your visit. Bit envious here now. But well, I live in the Netherlands so NASA is not exactly next door..
