Cygnus Spacecraft

Hello! This is my model of Orbital TK's Cygnus spacecraft. Designed as part of  NASA's Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) program, Cygnus is a unmanned cargo vehicle with a maximum capacity of 7,700 lbs. It has an orbital life ranging from a week to a couple of years. The spacecraft is made up of main sections. The first is a pressurized cargo module (PCM) with the second being a service module (SM). The PCM is made the Thales Alenia Space company with the SM made by Orbital ATK. 

My model features the ISS docking port as well as the distinct pair of circular looking decagon solar panels! Due to the scale, I've not been able to get a good version of them in a folding capacity. 

Future updates... I plan on adding a working docking port/hatch and allow some access to the interior of the modal. Also, I'll be tweaking the colors a bit to be more realistic and give it some "pop"!

Ad Astra and Leg Godt!
