The MS is the latest version of the Russian workhorse, Soyuz. First flown on 7 July 2016, it is the last planned derivative of the aging space classic. The Soyuz was originally designed to go to the Moon, but after the failure of the N-1 rocket and the fatal mission of the first Soyuz spacecraft , this plan was abandoned. Since then seven models have flown: Soyuz, T, TM, TMA, TMA-M, MS, and the unmanned Progress.
This LEGO model includes a fully detailed interior, complete with six cosmonauts, and can split into three parts with ease: orbital, descent and propulsion modules. The orbital and descent stages can open up to reveal the plastic cosmonauts manning the controls and conducting experiments in the orbital lab. The propulsion module has a storage compartment containing tools, an umbilical cord for EVAs, and a little Sputnik 1 just for fun. The main docking door and the door separating the orbital and descent stages can be removed, and the orbital module contains a docking window that actually works. The two radar antennas are both movable, as is the module connection system. Both solar panel arrays are fully retractable as well. This 936 piece set is perfect for both play and display!
