Comments: This kit depicts the 2005 Northrop-Grumman design for the proposed Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV). The kits parts are nicely cast with slightly soft details and engraved panel lines. The main spacecraft part is hollow cast and has a visible seam that will need some cleanup. The antenna parts also need some minor cleanup work: the more delicate arms and spikes are still attached to their pour plugs. The solar arrays are thin resin that are quite flexible: they'll probably sag a bit. Decals are provided for the solar cells, hatch and window markings. Since the final markings are not known, a variety of markings are provided. The instruction sheet breaks the assembly into six steps, each illustrated with an annotated photograph. An optional display stand is available or you can provide your own.
