Ares V and other historic craft

The Artisan prop and model shop of Quantum Mechanix, QMx FX Cinema Arts, was asked to illustrate the history of space flight with models for the film. They constructed fourteen models in total.

On their website, along with a picture of the model of the Ares V, there was this caption, "The Ares V rocket is the first model in the History of Spaceflight Collection that dips its toe into fiction. A real NASA project that was scrapped in favor of the SLS (Space Launch System) program, the Ares V would have been the largest of several modular Ares launch vehicles designed to make transport of people and materials to space commonplace and cost-effective."
