Comments: Note: This kit has been discontinued by RealSpace Models.

The resin parts are superbly molded with fine details. There are no evident airholes and very little flash on the parts, but there is a bit of a molding seam on a couple of the parts. The white metal parts are also crisply molded with a bit of the pour plug that must be removed. The photoetched parts include the solar panels, which must be rolled into shape using the supplied dowel. The plastic rod is used in the assembly of the magnetometer/electron reflectometer. The gold foil is silver on the reverse side, so it can be used to cover the spacecraft and the fuel tanks. The instruction sheet contains step-by-step illustrated assembly and painting guides. A photo of the completed model on the box covers also serves as an assembly and painting guide. This kit is an officially licensed Lockheed Martin product.

Reference Price: $55.00
