Atlas V 421 MORELOS-3 model in 1:96 scale

Another addition to my Atlas V model collection is the Atlas V in 421 configuration carrying the MORELOS-3 satellite for Mexico. The Atlas V was successfully launched on Oct 2, 2015 from Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral.

This was the 100th flight by United Launch Alliance deploying a sophisticated geomobile communications satellite to bridge the digital divide in Mexico.

The following photos show in detail the Atlas V that deployed the Mexican satellite. This is a 1:96 scale papermodel, which is available for a free download at my website. You can also download it here on this post. The download link is at the bottom of the page.



The 421 configuration indicates for 2 Solid Rocket Motors. The above photos show the position of the SRMs on the booster.

This model is dedicated to my friends from Mexico.
