PROTOTYPE HISTORY

On cloudless nights, with a certain amount of luck, every inhabitant of the Earth can raise a head to the sky and see a small twinkling star flying among other celestial bodies. This is not a star, not a planet, but the largest man-made object - an outpost of humanity in near space - the International Space Station. Thirty years ago it seemed impossible, but at the end of the 20th century, the advanced countries of the world united to create a space research center. The launch of the station became a symbol of international cooperation and the end of the Cold War.

The ISS consists of 14 modules, solar panels and technological devices and mechanisms. The station weighs about 450 tons and revolves around the Earth at an altitude of 340 kilometers, orbiting the planet 16 times earth day.

The ISS blocks and modules belong to NASA, the European Space Agency, Japan, Brazil, Canada and the Russian Federation. These countries make the greatest contribution to the development of the station and the researches carried out there.

The ISS is the embodiment of the most advanced technical achievements of earthlings. Research in outer space opens up prospects for the colonization of other planets, thats why the significance of the space station cannot be overestimated. At the same time, the station is an impressive, aesthetically flawless, futuristic engineering structure. Each of the architects, engineers, designers and mechanics involved in its creation can consider himself a chosen one who has put his skills into the embodiment of a new hope for humanity.

Paying tribute to the engineering genius of the creators of the artificial celestial body, the designers of Metal Time have created a prefabricated model of the Astronauts Lodge of the space research station.

FEATURES, BENEFITS

The Astronauts Lodge is a good exercise for hands and spatial awareness because it is made up of many different parts. These are two-dimensional solar panels, and three-dimensional modules and blocks, and a massive platform. To assemble it you will need to be patient and study the structure of a real space station. Knowing the name and purpose of each module, it will be twice more interesting to assemble them with your own hands. 

Astronauts Lodge is equipped with an electric motor that allows the structure to rotate on its own axis. You can also manually adjust the tilt angle of the station to the surface where it is located. The time spent on assembling the model will pay off with the result in the form of the original model, which will take its rightful place in your collection.

The "Astronauts Lodge" constructor is a wonderful gift for those who are interested in the space achievements of mankind, fans of science fiction and complex engineering structures. The space station model is the most extraordinary interior decoration, surpassing the originality of ships from space in TV series. 

An evenly revolving, glittering, steel-faced structure on your desktop is best set up for productive work and provides many ideas for engineering or design work. Like all the Metal Time models, «Astronauts Lodge» is made of sustainable food grade stainless steel approved for consumer goods and toys.

Precise cutting of the set eliminates the possibility of cuts during the assembling process. The parts fit accurately together and will not create problems with connecting. Pleasant tactile sensations, durability and aesthetics of matte metal distinguish the steel parts from wooden or plastic ones used in other constructors. 

Convenient flat packaging made from sustainable recyclable cardboard combines compactness and the aesthetics of a status gift. Each buyer of the "Metal time" model receives a club badge, a thank you card and a unique number assigned to each model. Joining the Metal Time club opens up additional opportunities for each customer.

WHAT IS IN THE GIFTBOX?

Besides, every customer gets a club badge "Metal Time" and the club's registration card, which creates opportunities for the "Metal Time" constructor owners activities.
