Since I haven't been able to get many electronics or building materials for my current projects because of the effects on factory production and shipping I decided to make a 3d printed model. I browsed Thingiverse and found this model of a Soyuz rocket. I scaled it up 135% to increase detail and size. I'm using a 0.25 brass nozzle at 0.05mm layer heights, the best my Prusa MK3S can print at. The piece with the longest printing time the capsule right bellow the launch escape system. As of now I finnished the launch escape tower. To give you an idea of scale the 4 boosters take up almost all of the vertical build space. Here are the links and images:

Here is the launch escape tower and the currently printing capsule and enclosure. There is also a picture of where they are on the real soyuz.

I forgot to update it for a while. The blue hollow piece actualpy needs to be reprinted, but this is how it looks. I also need to add some flags and logos to the top ferring section.

I got it glued together with epoxy, canopy glue, and plastic CA, and decided to make a Tetris themed video about it. After I print a bunch of masks I'll make a Falcon HEavy to the same scale, and after that a Delta IV Medium.
