Simple Astronaut with ACES Free Papercraft DownloadThis papercraft is a simple Astronaut with ACES (Advanced Crew Escape Suit or Pumpkin Suit), created by Thorsten Brand, and the scale is in 1:48.

The Advanced Crew Escape Suit was a full pressure suit that began to be worn by Space Shuttle crews after STS-65, for the ascent and entry portions of flight. The suit is a direct descendant of the U.S. Air Force high-altitude pressure suits worn by the two-man crews of the SR-71 Blackbird, pilots of the U-2 and X-15, and Gemini pilot-astronauts, and the Launch Entry Suits (LES) worn by NASA astronauts starting on the STS-26 flight, the first flight after the Challenger disaster.

The suit is manufactured by the David Clark Company of Worcester, Massachusetts. Cosmetically the suit is very similar to the LES. For further information please click here.
