Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Eagles Talon
Name: Atlas D
Scale: 1:48
Kit contents: 23 resin pieces
1 acrylic tube
instructions
Comments: The resin pieces are finely molded and seem rather sturdy for resin. Most parts were free of pinholes, but there were a couple of bubbles on the engine bells. An adaptor piece is included to mate the Atlas with the 1/48 scale Mercury capsule recently reissued by Revell. There's also an ICBM nose cone included if you wish to model the ICBM version of the Atlas. The instructions include a parts list, planview and exploded drawings, and a painting guide. You can model it with the booster engines attached, or with just the sustainer engine, but it's not clear to me if you can make the boosters detachable, especially with regards to the oxygen line. You'll need to provide additional strip styrene, rod, and Plastruct forms to complete the details.
