These are capsule reviews of the kit contents. Since these kits
usually aren't found in hobby shops and can only be obtained via mail
order, these reviews provide a peek at what you would get. These
reviews are only descriptions of the contents, along with some photos.
Building the kits may reveal other features or problems that aren't
evident right out of the box. Pretty much all I hope to do here is to
provide a first glimpse so you'll know what you're in for before you
order the kit. As far as I know, most of these kits are currently available (unless otherwise designated).
Now, since most (if not all) of these kits are hand-made, variations
from my examples can occur. But I've found that most of these
manufacturers are modelers in their own rights, so they take great
care in providing the best kits that they can for an affordable price.
And since this is probably the only way we're ever gonna see kits of
these subjects, just be thankful they're available at all!
I've tried to be objective in these pages, but usually my reaction is:
"It's a space kit! It's great!"
As far as I know, these companies are still in business and the kits (unless noted otherwise) are still available. Reviews of kits from companies no longer in business are listed after this section.
