A new mission and a new paper model for the Atlas V collection.
The Atlas V paper model for the WorldView4 satellite is in a 401 configuration (4 meter diameter payload fairing) with no Solid Rocket Boosters and in 1:96 scale.
Atlas V WorldView 4
The Atlas V with designated number AV-062 was successfully launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California on Friday Nov 11, 2016.
The WorlView4 satellite will climb to orbit atop the Atlas V rocket, built by UNITED LAUNCH ALLIANCE. The WorldView4 satellite hosts a 1.1 meter telescope that can resolve details on the ground as small as 31 centimeters.

And as a bonus, here’s the Atlas V WorldView3 that I couldn’t complete at the time of the launch back in 2014. Enjoy!
Atlas V WorldView 3
The WorlView3 satellite was launched into orbit on August 13, 2014 via an Atlas V from Vandenberg Air Force Base.
The satellite was based on a Ball Aerospace Platform hosting an agile pointing system and optical payload delivering panchromatic images at a 31 centimeter resolution, color imagery at 1.24 meters and expanding previous capabilities by adding an infrared imaging system.
Enjoy the models!
