Quick Looks

Manufacturer: New Ware
Name: Atlas SLV-3 Agena D GAATV
Scale: 1:144
Kit contents: 14 resin parts
Comments: This kit depicts the launch vehicle for the Gemini Agena target vehicle. The kit parts are beautifully cast with crisp details, a smooth surface finish and no visible airholes. The banding of the Atlas is nicely done as engraved lines. All parts, except for the engine nozzles, are solidly molded. The engine bells are nicely hollowed out. All parts are still attached to their pour plugs. To completely detail the turbo exhaust, the modeler will have to provide either wire or rod. You won't use all of the decals, as the decal sheet is common among other New Ware Atlas kits. They include the checkerboard pattern for the Agena. In addition to the graphical assembly instructions, the instruction sheet includes a short program history and a four view painting and decaling guide. The decal guide shows to use the US Flag decals on the Agena: they should not be used if you are modeling the Gemini 8 Agena LV.
