The Start launcher was similar to the Start 1 already presented but had an additional stage.
The only launch made on 28/03/1995 was a failure.
The model is a personal modification of the Start 1 available here:

Comparison with the Start 1:

Legendary launcher, at the origin of all the great space firsts of the early days: first satellite, first living being in orbit, first man in space, etc..., the R7 or Semiorka (often named after its payload, Vostok, Soyuz, etc...) was first launched in 1957 and is still in the forefront today (only rocket able to send men into orbit as of May 23, 2020).
It was originally the first intercontinental missile in history (SS6 Sapwood).
The model represents one of the first test models.
Model from Scissorsandplane.

Welcome to our Sunday special!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8gu1p939a4

You've just witnessed the first countdown in rocket history.
It was featured in the 1929 silent film "Frau im Mond" by Fritz Lang.
For this film, Lang hired the best rocket theorist and researcher of the time, the forerunner Hermann Oberth.
Also, even imaginary, the lunar rocket "Friede" was at the forefront of research at the time (liquid fuels, stages, etc...).
Hoberth who was Von Braun's professor will later work on the V2 before joining the USA to continue his research in astronautics. He will die at 95 years old after having seen the realization of his dreams; the man on the Moon.

Model from Currell:

The SS-6 is not an ideal intercontinental missile because it takes far too long to operate.
But it made history on October 4, 1957 when it launched the first artificial satellite: Sputnik.
But I've already presented you this rocket, so let's go straight to the next one.
On November 3 of the same year, a living being is put into orbit for the first time aboard Sputnik 2.
The trip is unfortunately without return for the dog Laďka but proof is made that one can live in space.
Models: Scissorandplanes.

Sputnik:


Sputnik2:

On May 15, 1958, the R7 launched Sputnik 3, a huge satellite weighing 1327 kilograms carrying a whole series of scientific devices for studying solar particles, micrometeorites, etc...
Note that it is the second Sputnik 3; the first Sputnik 3 having been lost following the failure of the April launch.
Model: Scissorsandplanes.

Years ago in school I did presentation on Venera probes (Venus exploration).I think those have also been launched with one of further developments of R7 rocket.

Russians got a lot of mileage out of that design .it's almost like it wasn't meant to be ICBM at all but rather space exploration rocket.They are still flying,aren't they?

Incredible production! I can't even watch. Do you have a factory for models?
Butelczynski
Yes, for sending the Venus and Mars probes, the Russians created a larger carrier based on the R7 - Molniya.
A colleague motivated me so much with his work that I am trying to create my first rocket model and that will be Molniya. So wish me success.
And I look forward to continuing this series.
And how about adjusting the model to this:
