Quick Looks

Manufacturer: New Ware
Name: Thorad SLV-2H Agena D
Scale: 1:144
Kit contents: 16 resin parts
24 photoetched parts (only 11 are needed. The rest are extra)
Comments: This kit depicts the launch vehicle for the Orbital Geophysical Observatory 6 satellite. The kit parts are beautifully cast with crisp details, a smooth surface finish and no visible airholes. 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. For complete accuracy, the modeler will have to add wire or rod not supplied with the kit for the turbo exhaust braces. Extra photoetched parts are included in case you need them: they're quite tiny and delicate. You won't use all of the decals included, since the decal sheet is common to all the New Ware Thor kits. In addition to the graphical assembly instructions, the instruction sheet includes a short program history and a four view painting and decaling guide.
