Kit contents: 1 PVC tube
19 resin pieces
4 styrene tubes
half round strip
styrene rod
instruction sheet
Comments: The main airframe of the rocket is represented by the PVC tube. The four styrene tubes represent the strapon GEM solid boosters. The rest of the launch vehicle is made up of resin parts for the aft section and engine, nose cone, strapon nose cones and nozzles, and details to be used with the styrene rod to represent the oxidizer line. A paper template is included to mark the tube for placement of the half-round styrene that represents a cabling tunnel and mounting points for the strapon motors. You will have to provide your own pins for mounting the boosters. The resin parts are crisply molded with some minor airholes on the upper stage section 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.
