DRAGON WINGS 56341 NASA TITAN IIIC on LAUNCH PAD - MAIDEN FLIGHT 18th June 1965 1:400th scale

The Titan family of expendable rockets was extremely successful, with a total of 368 rockets launched between 1959 and 2005. One of the rockets from this family was the Titan IIIC, this being a space booster used primarily for US Air Force (USAF) missions. The Titan IIIC was indispensable in launching large payloads into space, serving as the largest unmanned space booster until the Titan IV entered service in 1988. A 13.1-tonne payload could be sent into a low-earth orbit, or 3 tonnes could be sent into a geosynchronous transfer orbit. One of the Titan IIICís strengths was its flexibility, which meant the 42m-long rocket could carry a variety of payloads depending on the mission.

The Titan IIIC built by Martin Marietta first flew on 18 June 1965, and Dragon Wings has released a 1/400 scale model to commemorate this maiden launch. The model is highly accurate and is fully detailed. Itís pre-painted and carries the correct series of USAF markings. It features the two huge strap-on solid rocket boosters that propelled Titan IIIC on its first ever foray into space from Cape Canaveral. Interestingly, Titan IIIC was distinguished by being the first to use solid-rocket motors to boost performance of the liquid-fueled core vehicle. Furthermore, the scale model comes with its own launch pad, thus creating an instant and dramatic diorama.
