Scale model of Venera-4 spacecraft

Scale model of Venera-4. The spacecraft consists of an atmospheric probe, attached to the top of the main body inside a spherical shield, a cylindrical main body with a prominent main dish-antenna on the side and a conical manoeuvring engine at the base. A long, narrow solar panel is attached on either side of the main body. Several small fittings on the model may be actual flight hardware, used instead of manufacturing reproductions of awkwardly-shaped parts.
