Slide of the Month Extra - Shenzhou


Time to print: 3 hours

Finishing: 1.5 hour

Thingiverse 2013

Design: Craig_H
Modifications:  Bill Macfarlane

Shenzhou is the capsule from Chinese manned space program and translation I like the best is "magic boat". Similar to the Russian Soyuz spacecraft but on a larger in scale. On October 15, 2003  Yang Liwei became the first Chinese astronaut to be launched into space. He orbited the earth 14 before reentry and landing in Inner Mongolia.

Based off a design by  Craig_H, I added a second set of solar panels on the orbital module to more closely resemble the Shenzhou 5 mission. The solar panels are super glued on the craft with a slight rotation. The slide is painted with paint pens and the flag was done using water slide paper.
