Land your own Dragon with new models of SpaceX spacecraft

As the first commercial spacecraft to fly to the International Space Station (ISS) prepares to return to Earth, the company behind the history-making capsule has made it possible for its fans to land their own Dragon.

Space Exploration Technologies, or SpaceX, has licensed Canada-based Proach Models to produce scale models of their Dragon spacecraft and Falcon rockets. The first of its kind deal was launched within hours of SpaceX seeing its Dragon spacecraft successfully berthed to the complex on May 25.

While it's good news they've opened this line of 1:72 Falcons, not everyone has the kind of space to display such models. One would hope a 1:144 line by Proach may eventually follow.
