This is the Electron Rocket, a small rocket designed for dedicated small-sat launches. It is currently still active, with Rocket Lab building more and more. I built this to minifigure scale.
1st stage: 9 Rutherford rocket engines, total thrust of 216KN
2nd stage:1 Vacuum optimized Rutherford engine, thrust of 24KN
Payload: The rocket can deliver 150-225KG to SSO(Sun Synchronous Orbit)
Some people say that Rocket Lab is the new SpaceX.
In pictures 2 and 3, I included the battery packs for the Rutherford engines.
NOTE: The optional 3rd stage has not been included as it is not in use as of the time of this post.
