Atlas II was a member of the Atlas family of launch vehicles, which evolved from the successful Atlas missile program of the 1950s. It was designed to launch payloads into low earth orbit, geosynchronous transfer orbit or geosynchronous orbit. This series used an improved Centaur upper stage – the world’s first high-energy propellant stage – to increase its payload capability. Sixty-three launches of the Atlas II, IIA and IIAS models were carried out between 1991 and 2004.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
