    Is anyone aware of a model of the Venera spacecraft, paper or otherwise? I have seen some scratchbuilt models, but no kits, and never a paper version. Any ideas? :confused:

    I built one VeGa, wich was a Venera type spacecraft for Venus and Halley Comet research (hence Ve-Ga) and I gave it to the Soviet Embassador here in Brazil in 1988; It was all done in paper, with the sole exception of the spherical atmospheric entry vehicle and some rounded gas tanks.
    But I am not aware of any Venera paper models available on the net.

    It's a shame it isn't available. It looks like a good subject for a paper model. I'd do it myself, but I have zero experience with designing models. (I will occasionally draw out parts by hand, but as far as computer programs go, i don't even know how to start. :grin: )
    Considering it's the first and only spacecraft series to land on Venus, I hope it is built someday...
