Here is my model of the Soyuz-FG rocket. The model is a highly detailed 1/50 scale model standing a total of almost 103 cm tall.
I have provided the full model of the rocket with a high level of detail along with a model suitable for 3D printing, divided into pieces small enough for most printers with some of the finer details adjusted to allow for easier printing at this scale. In addition there are now parts to make the boosters detachable as well as the fairings.
The blueprints corresponds to the 3D printable model and the file names for each part.
1 x stage 1
1 x stage 2
4 x booster
4 x strut 1
4x strut 2
4 x shims for glueing on boosters or detachable booster clips depending on which version you choose to print
Parts for the 3D printable model have alignment holes to aid in construction as well as lettering to show the correct orientation for each part. The alignment holes are sized to fit a 15 mm long piece of 1.75 mm filament as the alignment pins.
I recommend leaving off the struts if you wish to use the detachable boosters. If you choose to glue the boosters in place with the shim, attach the struts after gluing the boosters in place. You can scale the struts along their length to get a perfect fit.

Using 1.6/2.1 B parts will result in a much stronger / more stable model than the A parts, and will enable the second stage to be separated from the model. If you use 1.6/2.1 A you will need to glue the first and second stage together upon assembly.
Soyuz-FG 1/50 detachable boosters.zip - parts for detachable boosters
Replace the corresponding part numbers from Soyuz-FG 1/50 3D printable.zip with the detachable version, and print 4 booster clips in order to allow the side boosters to detach from the model. I recommend not using the struts for the detachable model.

Take care when clipping each booster on to the centre core as the tip is delicate and is hard to re-attach. The booster clip can be scaled along its length to achieve a perfect fit when clipping on/off a booster. Aim for a tight fit so the boosters are held securely.
Soyuz-FG 1/50 detachable fairing.zip - parts for detachable fairings
Replace the parts 2.3B and 2.4 with fairing 1 to enable the detachable fairing halves 2/3 to be used along with fairing part 4 (launch escape tower).
You will need to use slightly shorter locating pins (12mm) to enable fairing 1 to be glued in place on the model.

The Soyuz-FG rocket is currently (July 2019) the only man rated rocket in operation, servicing the international space station with the Soyuz space craft. Derived from the R-7 rocket, the first ICBM, the Soyuz family of rockets have been in operation since 1966 and has launched more times than any other rocket with an excellent record of reliability.
