Martian, The 2015 Mars Ascent Vehicle (MAV) 1/72 Scale Model Kit:

About the Design:    
Featured prominently in Ridley Scott's 2015 "The Martian," the Mars Ascent Vehicle (MAV) is a highly plausible craft for ferrying six astronauts from the Martian surface into low orbit. The craft consists of a descent module (which also serves as a launching pad during take off), a primary ascent stage, a smaller secondary ascent stage, and the manned capsule itself.
In the movie, stranded astronaut Mark Whatley (Matt Damon), under instructions from NASA, removes hundreds of pounds of excess weight -- including the spare astronaut couches, control panels, window hatches and docking module -- so he can achieve enough speed to rendezvous with the "Hermes" mothership as it swings by during its improvised sling-shot maneuver around the Red Planet.
