Quick Looks

Manufacturer: New Ware
Name: Lockheed Starclipper
Scale: 1:144
Kit contents: 20 resin parts
2 resin stand parts
Comments: Most of the kit parts are solid, with a smooth surface finish with finely engraved panel lines and no evident air holes. The engine bells are nicely hollowed out and have crisply molded details. Most of the parts are still on their pour plugs which will have to be removed. Two resin parts are to be used with a piece of scrap sheet plastic to support the model for display. The instruction sheet includes a two-view assembled drawing with the parts called out by number... the parts themselves have no numbers that I can find. However, it's easy to identify the parts by shape. The instructions also include a two-view painting and decaling guide. A list of references for this early space shuttle concept finish off the instructions. New Ware also sells the parts for the orbiter only.
