This is a
1:100 scale model of a Commercial Space Station, which we were
commissioned to build in 2019. The model features a variety of
customized modules, stowage facilities, an airlock, an
observatory, a robotic arm and a main solar array. The model is
accompanied with replicas of the SpaceX Dragon and Boeing
CST-100 supply ships. Later we are going to add to this set a
replica of the SpaceX Dragon 2 as well. The model also includes
several posed astronaut figurines, designed and customized for
us by Mr. Max Grueter.
The model was designed in 3D software, produced by rapid
prototyping and manually assembled, painted and decorated.
In this model we implemented the features and technics developed
for our models of ISS, which we were building and perfecting
since 2008. The model has reliable internal reinforcement
system, holding the modules together. Most vulnerable elements
are produced from durable materials – metal and nylon. Selected
components and supply ships’ replicas have embedded magnets,
allowing to reconfigure the station and exercise various docking
schemes. The model is mounted with support poles on a black
The model is designed to be partially disassembled during
transport. It is packed in a Pelican heavy duty transit case and
can be fast and easily assembled for presentation.
