i am enthusiastic 1/144 space model kit collector (RealSpace, Anigrand, Ravell, Airfix, NewWare, etc. etc.) but I always suffered from the lack of real and authentic 1/144 cosmonauts/astronauts figures. The biggest pleasure for any modeller is to add his/her own personal touch to the model kit by adding detail and making it more realistic as possible, so I have been looking for realistic and accurate 1/144 cosmonauts/astronauts figures for many years.

Most of 1/144 space model kits on the market could be enriched by astronaut figures letting modelers to create very nice and exclusive dioramas.

There are 1/144 space capsules models (Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Vostok, Voskhod, Soyuz) that can be equiped with internal crew or with external EVA (as the first spacewalk performed by Russian Voskhod capsule... think how could be nice to add a cosmonaut figure linked to a Voskhod Capsule by a thin copper wire!).

There are 1/144 space shuttle models which modelers can enjoy with by placing crew inside or MMU/Astronauts working outside with EVA.

There are many 1/144 space rockets models (from American Atlas to giant Saturn or Soviet A-2) where 1/144 walking to capsule astronauts/cosmonauts can be placed in tower launch ramp.

And do not forget moon soil, where American astronauts printed their footprints!

Recently I have had the pleasure to find a very nice and extremely accurate 1/144 cosmonauts/astronauts set (they are in 3D printed) and their detail level is very high!

Here are some preview. Incoming "Apollo Missions" astronauts set can be ordered at Shapeways and looking for singsing13 as designer.

Astronauts set will be ready soon (according to latest news)! You can contact designer at:
