A new era in human history began on October 4, 1957. Her birth was bright and loud - among the fire, pillars of smoke and a deafening roar, the R-7 space rocket rose into the sky for the first time in history. A metal spear penetrated the layers of the atmosphere, and brought into orbit the first man-made object - Sputnik-1
Over the next 60 years, people got used to starts. Now, almost every week, rockets take off into the sky - metal cigars. Carrying a payload into near space. Many of them return back to Earth to repeat flights again and again.
Despite more than half a century of history, the design and design of space rockets have not changed much. And it was they who inspired the designers of "Metal Time", creating a constructor for self-assembly "AD ASTRA".
So far, rockets have only reached close space. This is their task - to overcome the resistance of the Earth's atmosphere and send their cargo to sail through space. However, along with the name "AD ASTRA", the developers of "Metal Time" gave the model the features of spaceships from the works of science fiction writers of the last century, implying that interstellar travel would be carried out by spaceships of this kind.
The trend of 2022 in Metal Time models is the use of colored stainless steel. Therefore, "AD ASTRA" has acquired a variety of colors.
The two stages of the rocket are cyan blue. And the stylized flames escaping from the engine nozzle are in red.
Details are attached to the body, depicting "fins" - stabilizers, and air flows that the rocket cuts through in flight.
The middle part of the case has a characteristic stainless steel mirror surface, in which a space-themed ornament is carved, which is reminiscent of illustrations from science fiction novels.
But most importantly, the “AD ASTRA” model, assembled by skillful hands, comes to life thanks to the built-in light source and the ability to rotate. Light breaks through the stars carved into the case and leaves reflections on the walls and ceiling of the room. Turning the model into a night light, and the ceiling into a small planetarium.
Fans of science fiction, space series and romance, dreaming of distant worlds, will be happy with the AD ASTRA constructor, and collectors of Metal Time models will add another outstanding exhibit to their collections.

Just as people dared to send satellites into space to unravel these mysteries, so those who dare to assemble a rocket model will face many challenges.
