Voskhod 1 rocket, scale 1:18, made of resin and metal.  The length of the rocket model is around 1.8 meters.

Voskhod 1 blasted on Oct. 12, 1964, carried 3 cosmonauts Komarov, Feotistov, Egorov. This mission of Voskhod 1 achieved a number of "firsts" in the history of manned spaceflight, being the first space flight to carry more than one crewman into orbit, the first flight without the use of spacesuits, and the first to carry either an engineer or a physician into outer space. It also set a manned spacecraft altitude record of 336 km. However unknown to the world was the unfathomable risk taken by the cosmonauts. Without any viable emergency rescue at liftoff and without spacesuits, the trio faced certain death in case of even a small air leak, let alone a launch failure.

An initial concept of the three-seat spacecraft formulated in February 1964 called for keeping the mass of the spacecraft unchanged, however the resulting Voskhod gained weight, reaching 5.7 tons.

To launch the heavier payload, its rocket was equipped with a more powerful upper stage, which was borrowed from the Molniya booster.  It enabled to add an extra ton of payload.
