This is a hand made resin model of China's Chang Zhen Launch Rocket.
It is used to propel the Shen Zhou spacecraft & other satellites into orbit.

The model was made expressly
for the China Aerospace Corporation

It is an authentic piece
of China's Space History.

  The scale of the model is 1:130 and its measured height is about 40cm. The rocket was produced and designed by the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology [CALT] and the Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology [SAST], both of which belong to the China Aerospace Corporation. It is very similar to the CZ-3A but with four liquid-fuel strap-on boosters of the type used by the CZ-2E.

The CZ family of rockets was also responsible for sending the Shen Zhou Manned space ship into orbit. On August 20, 1997, the second flight of LM-3B successfully launched the Philippine Agila 2 MABUHAY satellite, and on October 17, 1997 the third flight of LM-3B sent the APSTAR-IIR satellite into a successful orbit.

   The first Shen Zhou spacecraft was launched into orbit by the Long March 2E booster, designated the 2F and equipped with a launch escape system. The spacecraft’s descent capsule was safely recovered after a flight of 21 hours 11 min and 14 orbits. The orbital module remained in space. The capsule’s landing was not perfect and might have injured a crewman. It landed under parachute within Inner Mongolia. Shenzhou means Divine Ship (God Vessel or Magic Vessel).

The Shen Zhou-2 also performed three orbital maneuvers and landed seven days later. It is understood but not confirmed that the capsule was badly damaged. The orbital module remained operational in space.

    This mission was the most ambitious space science flight conducted by China, including more than 60 experiments in life sciences, materials processing and crystal growth. The craft also carried cosmic ray and particle detectors. The experiments were carried in the descent capsule and orbital module and mounted on pallets on the orbital module and instrument section.

The third Shen Zhou flight was launched on March 25, 2002 and was highly successful, leading project officials to launch one more – successful – unmanned flight in late 2002 and the first manned flight in October, with the Shen Zhou-5.
