2014 our 1:100 scale model of International Space Station was
By the request from NASA we performed a few minor changes in ISS
configuration - moved a few masts and small details. Replicas of
Space Shuttle, ATV and CEV "Orion" were excluded from the set of
accompanying logistics vehicles. Instead we developed and added
replicas of Dragon and Cygnus spacecraft.
The model itself, however, was significantly upgraded. We made
the internal support system even more durable, yet lighter, by
using carbon fiber elements. Side supports were added, which
increased model's stability. A great number of solar panels and
other thin and vulnerable parts were replaced with metal
The transit case foam lining and transport configuration of the
model were also modified. The main solar arrays are transporting
now detached from the model - it reduced the stress on the model
itself and the solar arrays.
models became stronger than ever, production time - reduced,
transportation - became safer.
