Revell-Germany has released a 1/144-scale plastic model of SpaceShip Two and WhiteKnight Two.


Built by Virgin Galactic with the goal of space tourism travel for the wealthy public, the WhiteKnight Two carries the SpaceShip Two under its belly to 50,000 feet (15,000 meters) where SpaceShip Two is released. Rocket boosters then fire to place SpaceShip Two into a maximum climb of 361,000 feet (110,000 meters), upon which the engines cut off and passengers are weightless for five minutes before SpaceShip Two begins its unpowered glide back to the spaceport. The cost of one passenger ticket is around $250,000 USD.
