Tsiklon, KSLV and Mercury

Hi guys!
After some weeks a little busy with some exams I am back.

I managed to complete these amazing models by Leo.
Tsiklon, KSLV and Mercury-p1010291.jpg

First the KSLV-1, a Russian-Korean lightweight launcher:

Since the model is a little difficult to keep in a vertical position I made a very crude launch pad with a ladder:

This model has a detachable nose cone with a small engine:

Next the TSYKLON rocket with a closeup of its eight first stage engines and an extra upper stage:

Finally the Mercury spacecraft with a escape launch system (my first incursion into non Russian-Soviet models up to now):

Tsiklon, KSLV and Mercury-p1010293.jpg

And now a comparison with the Soviet Zond spacecraft (which traveled unmanned around in moon during the moon race with the US). Keep in mind the difference in scales: Mercury is 1:24 whereas Zond is 1:48.

I hope you like them !
