Kit contents: 9 resin pieces
1 PVC tube
half-round styrene strip

Comments: The main airframe of the rocket is represented by the PVC tube. The rest of the launch vehicle is made up of resin parts for the aft section and engine, nose cone, and details to be used with the styrene rod to represent the oxidizer line. A paper template is included to mark the PVC tube for proper parts alignment, such as placement of the half-round styrene that represents a cabling tunnel. The resin parts are crisply molded with some minor pitting on the nose cone in my sample. Removing the resin details from their pour plug for the oxidizer line may prove to be a bit tricky. The instruction sheet includes step-by-step graphics and text for assembling the kit. An exploded drawing and painting guide are also included in the instructions. The kit box has a photo of the assembled and painted model.
