Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Newman R&D/Muroc Models
Name: M2-F1 Lifting Body
Scale: 1:144
Kit contents: 9 resin pieces
2 vacuformed pieces
metal wire
styrene strip
Comments: The resin parts are nicely cast with some flash, but no visible airholes. The bottom tub is represented by a clear vacuformed part shipped on its resin master. This master provides support for drilling the holes required for the wire landing gear struts. A decal applied to the interior of the tub provides the drilling guide (and masking guide for the nose and left side windows) and also represents the internal ribbing of the aircraft. The only cockpit part provided is the seat, but not much else would be visible in the finished model. The instructions include a short program history, an illustrated parts list, multistep illustrated text assembly instructions and a painting and decaling guide.
