Let me show you upgraded Sputnik 1 scale model kit.
In 2020 I had build my own scale model of Sputnik 1 Satellite.
It was partially scratch materials but delicate ditails I did 3D model. This is how it looks:
Earlier this year (2024) I did recieved a request for the model kit of this satellite.
So I did several upgrades to my earlier version and made it look even better.
Now it is available in scale 1:6 and as I write the first model kit is on its way to USA.
I am very proud of the details of this model kit.
This is what new model kit looks like today:
The sensor bays, antenna attachments and the satellite domes I have 3D modelled using many historical sources.
Components of model kit:
- Instructions booklet // 1pcs
- Front dome // 1pcs
- Back dome // 1pcs
- Antenna mounts // 4 pcs + 2 spare
- Alignment pins // 4 pcs
Antennas are not included in this kit version.
Check your local model store (or DIY store) for stiff and lightweight rods.
Sputnik 1 had pairs of antennas of two different lengths.
In scale of 1:6 those are: 400mm and 483mm.
