Kit contents: 16 resin parts
metal pin
decals
CD-ROM
instructions
Comments: The resin parts are solid with crisply molded details and a smooth surface finish. The parachute channels are nicely molded into the top of the fuselage. There is some flash on all of the parts and there are some small divots on the underside of the main fuselage. There's also a bit of the pour plug on the main fuselage that needs removing. Templates for cutting antennas from paper or plastic are on the decal sheet. The instruction sheet consists of a three view drawing and tips on using sprue with the medal pin to form the nose probe. The CD-ROM contains 34 high resolution photos of the real vehicle that serves as the painting and decaling guide. The photos are also detailed enough for a superdetailer to really go to town.

Thanks to JettModels for the review copy!
