ESA Hermes spaceplane

ESA Hermes spaceplane 3D model

ESA's Hermes spaceplane and expendable module/adapter. This was one of the more significant European efforts towards a crewed spacecraft, and drove many of the design decisions for the Ariane 5 rocket developed concurrently. It was primarily intended to service the Man-Tended Free Flyer platform, also to have been built by ESA in the 1990s

Several Hermes design iterations were performed, this model is based on the configuration towards the end of the program, shortly before its cancelation.

File includes versions of each part with unapplied modifiers for easy editing. Service module radiators are articulated.

Recommended for use with my Ariane 5 model
