Dragon has previously offered a fine model of a Titan IIIC rocket (Item No.56341). The Titan IIIC acted as a space booster primarily for US Air Force (USAF) missions. Now comes another 1/400 scale variation of the Titan family of expendable rockets, a Titan IIIC carrying a Manned Orbital Laboratory (MOL) payload The MOL was a space station designed to perform military reconnaissance tasks for the USA. The MOL program was announced in 1963, and crews would return from the space station via a Gemini 2 spacecraft. Only one launch was completed in the MOL program, before the program was axed in December 1969. On November 3 1966, a Titan IIIC blasted off from Cape Canaveral with a MOL mockup built from a Titan II propellant tank. The MOL, entered orbit and released three satellites, while the Gemini 2 reentry vehicle separated and performed a 33-minute suborbital test flight. This was actually Gemini 2ís second flight after a first one occurred in 1965.

Dragon Wings has a 1/400 scale model of this Titan IIIC from the MOL program. Its appearance is quite distinct from earlier Space Collection models of the Titan IIIC and IIIE, and the model boasts new toolings for the main rocket body and the MOL mock-up. The rocket is highly accurate and is fully detailed, including the two huge strap-on solid boosters. The model is pre-painted and carries the correct series of USAF markings. Furthermore, the scale model comes with its own launch pad, thus creating an instant diorama.

Martin Titan IIIC Rocket

The Titan rocket was a general purpose expendable launch vehicle that was first flown on February 6th, 1959. The Titan program was developed to provide a back-up launch system for the Atlas program as well as to develop a larger two-stage launch system. 368 Titan rockets were launched, including those used by NASA for project Gemini. The complete Titan family spanned, in increasing size and power, from the Titan I thru Titan IV.
