In March 2003 the CNES French Space Agency received a delegation from China Satellite Launch & Tracking Control. On this occasion CNES was offered a 1/40 brass model of the shenzhou spacecraft. I was given the opportuny to use this model to take photographs and measurements to produce diagrams. My plan is to use these photographs and diagrams to scratchbuild a 1/48 Shenzhou in order to fit it into my Dragon 1/48 Long March 2E model which I also plan to convert into a Long March 2F for the occasion.
I hope this will be helpfull for all fellow real space modelers.
