Quick Looks

Manufacturer: RealSpace Models
Name: Mercury/Gemini/Apollo spacecraft set
Scale: 1:72
Kit contents: 34 resin pieces
29 photoetched parts
2 metal pins
Gold foil
Instruction sheet
Comments: The resin pieces are solid, with smooth surface finish and nice sharp detail. Some pinholes are present, but I got these in the 'pre-Meteor' days. Gold foil is included to cover the rear of the Gemini adaptor section. The instruction sheet includes exploded drawings of the assemblies along with folding directions for the photoetched parts and painting guides. My decals had a slight misregistration of the white portions. The boxart consists of a photo of the painted and completed kit which can also help as a painting guide.

Note: Many of the parts have been upgraded with more detail. See the Upgrades page for more information.
