And here’s another paper model for the Falcon 9 collection. This time is the JCSAT-14 mission.
The Falcon 9 v1.2 embarked on another exciting commercial mission carrying the Japanese JCSAT-14 satellite from SKY Perfect JSAT, a Tokyo based satellite operator.
At the time of this post, the Falcon 9 was successfully launched from Cape Canaveral at 1:21 am EDT on May 6, 2016 and for a second time in a row, the First Stage has landed on the Autonomous Spaceport Drone Ship “Of Course I Still Love You” succesfully!
The Falcon 9 fairing has logos of the companies involved, including SKY Perfect Coorporation, JCSAT-14, JSAT and the “Wish Upon a Satellite” logos.
SKY Perfect JSAT celebrated last year its 25th Anniversary with a campaign allowing the public to submit their wishes to space. The fairing shows the logo with some of the wishes.
Here is the official logo in japanese characters.
With all the logos identified, the model is now complete and it can be downloaded from this page.
After a few days, once photos of the booster on the ASDS barge are available, the First Stage will be released in landing configuration. So stay tuned.
And here’s the First Stage in Landing Configuration!
Let’s celebrate this successful mission by downloading the model!
