Impressive model of the rocket that, on October 4, 1957, sent the world's first satellite into space. The Sputnik was based on the R7 Semyorka ICBM. A detail that wasn't missed by the US as it incited a scramble to catch up with the Soviets. The present models shows excellent detail, down to the gleaming Sputnik-1 satellite with its antennae under the cone-shaped payload fairing atop the payload base.
