The Ares V Rocket was designed as a cargo launch vehicle as part of the NASA Constellation program. In part, it was intended to replace the Space Shuttles. The rocket was planned with 2 stages for launching, and a height of 358 feet with a 28 foot diameter. Regrettably, the Constellation program was cancelled in 2010, and the Ares V was never launched.
The Ares V Rocket model is an authentic, extraordinary replica of the original spacecraft that has been faithfully reproduced using exact blueprint specifications. Each model is meticulously hand painted giving the rocket a deep, rich finish. The result is a museum quality sculpture to be admired, and the rocket model is a magnificent collectible. The model comes fully assembled, and arrives with a display base.
