Delta-IV Heavy - 18mm
This kit is an approximate 1/124th scale of the United Launch Alliance (ULA) Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle (EELV).
The Delta IV is one of the two United States EELV boosters designed to launch a variety of small to large spacecraft into Low/Medium Earth Orbit, Geosynchronous Orbit, and planetary trajectories. The Delta IV’s first flight was on November 20, 2002 and launches from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida and Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
This kit of the Delta IV Heavy configuration has 3 main common core boosters that are strapped together and are powered with 18mm motors. The kit employs clear acrylic fins that are mounted on the aft of the airframe (normal placement) that make them almost invisible during launch and fly out.
This is a kit for the experienced builder. Adhesive wraps are provided as an option to simulate some of the smaller external details and the foam on the fuel tanks.
Please note, this is a sport scale model, some actual details are modified from the real rocket in order to accommodate extra durability for many flights.
