A model replica of a space return vehicle of the International Space Station
The X-38 Space Escape was designed to act as a crew return vehicle of the International Space Station. It had been regularly monitored by a drop test in order to ensure the safety of returning crew members to Earth. There are at least seven crewmembers that can board the escape shuttle. The main purpose of the vehicle was to enable space-bound scientists or researchers to make a quick journey back to Earth during those times when a medical emergency or other complications occur in the middle of a mission. It was built with a steerable par foil designed to create a more subtle earth landing since its moving speed was quite fast—thereby posing enough threats to land safely.
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!
