ANGARA 5P SPACE ROCKET MODEL.
ONE OF ONLY TWO MODELS MADE.
Large hand-made metal, plastic and resin model, 39 inches tall on thick wooden base, together 45 inches, MB Krunichev, 1990s.
A high quality, highly detailed hand-made large 1:72 scale model of the Russian space rocket Angara 5P, developed by the Moscow-based Krunichev State Research and Production Space Center. One of two models made for the MAKS 2008 exhibition at the International Aviation and Space Show near Moscow. The Angara is a two-stage rocket, 712-ton booster, with the "P" designation denoting that the rocket is "piloted" or "manned." Both the Angara 5 and 7 are designed for launching manned spacecraft. It is likely that the Angara 5P could become the main carrier of any projected Russian manned spacecraft during most of the 2020s.
