On March 3, 2021 at 23:15 UTC, Starship SN10 was the third fully assembled Starship to be launched and the first one to successfully flip and land.
Powered by three (3) Raptor engines, RSN 39, 50 and 51, SN10 successfully launched all the way up to 10km (33,000 ft). It then performed the skydive/bellyflop descent maneuver, relit all three (3) engines fueled by the CH4 and LOX header tanks and attempted the flip maneuver.
Unfortunately, SN10 landed hard with a slight lean and a fire near the base. Eight (8) minutes later, Sn10 exploded. The cause was probably due to partial helium ingestion from the fuel header tank.
This model is a 1/50 scale 3D printed replica of SN10 and has been designed using dozens of pictures and videos from @Bocachicagal, @RGVaerialphotos, and countless other photographers.
It is a complex project and it is recommended that you have experience with 3D printing.
You will need a printer with a minimum bed volume of 200x200x200mm.
You will need about 3kg of silver PLA and some white and black PLA (less than a 1kg each).
Some detailed instructions are provided to help you with printing and assembling the ship (92 pages).
