Scale models of Chinese launch vehicles are hard to find due to the secrecy surrounding their launch programs. This model of the Long March 3A (Chang Zheng, in Chinese) is probably one of the first ever in Europe. It is an easy kit to assemble, which makes it the simplest scale kit you can find.
The real Chinese Long March 3A (CZ-3A) rocket was a three-stage launch vehicle designed to launch satellites of 1,500 kg mass in geosynchronous transfer orbit. This is a 1:95 scale model of the rocket and features a vacuum-formed plastic molded ogive, a plastic fin-can and a body tube already decorated: no need to paint it!
The Long March 3 uses standard 18 mm motors type A, B and C.
