Quick Looks

Manufacturer: RealSpace Models
Name: Explorer 1 and Vanguard 1
Scale: 1:24
Kit contents: 5 resin parts
precut wire
Comments: The resin parts are solid with crisply molded details. The Explorer rocket nozzle is hollowed out. The parts are also quite small. There are some small air holes on the mating sides of the Explorer satellite and on the rocket nozzle in my kit. There're no pour plugs to remove, but the mating sides of all parts need to be sanded smooth. The precut wires provide the antennas for both satellites. The instructions consist of exploded view assembly guides with color callouts for painting.
