Manufacturer: RealSpace Models
Name: Shuttle Payload Bay
Scale: 1:72
Kit contents: 36 resin pieces
110 photoetched parts
Comments: This kit is meant to enhance payload bay the 1/72 Monogram Space Shuttle kit. Parts include the entire payload bay with fore and aft bulkheads, TV cameras, EVA hand rails, the Canadarm, KU band antenna, radiators, aft umbilicals, and cockpit windows. The resin parts are finely molded, with crisp details and a small amount of minor flash, but no evident airholes. Thermal blanket detail has been molded into the appropriate parts. Stainless steel photoetched parts represent the shuttle's radiator panels that are attached to the doors. The lion's share of the brass photoetched parts represent the EVA handrails. All photoetched parts are identified by numbers etched next to the parts. The resin parts are identified by shape or by relative placement on the parts tree as called out in the instruction sheets, which also include of multiple detailed drawings for part placement and painting. A color photo on the box cover also will help out with assembly.
