Comments: The spacecraft is one solid hunk o'resin, with a molded-in cockpit and gear wells. The surface finish is slightly rough, with some pin holes evident. The prominent panel lines of the X-20 are molded in; some may need additional scribing. You are given a choice of using a solid canopy piece (with no cockpit detail [obviously]) or detailing the cockpit with the included seat, canopy hatch, instrument panel, and vacuformed canopy part. The instructions include exploded drawings, with all options detailed. Nicely detailed drawings of the instrument panel and ejection seat are also included. The landing gear instructions recommend an external support be used, rather than depend on the white metal skids: this is a very heavy model. A painting guide is also included. The information article is an uncredited (major hiss!) xeroxed article from the July 1989 issue of Airpower magazine.
