Quick Looks

Manufacturer: RealSpace Models
Name: Mir Space Station
Scale: 1:144
Kit contents: 21 resin pieces
17 photoetched parts
square rod stock
blue foil
2 base parts
Comments: The resin parts are solid, with crisply molded fine details. There are no pinholes evident in the parts. There is a bit of flash on a couple of the parts, but other than the pouring plugs, they are very clean. The station modules have the insulating blanket molded in place. All modules are represented, including the shuttle docking adapter. Parts are also included to represent the shuttle's Orbital Docking System (in the payload bay), if you want to add to a 1:144 scale shuttle model to the configuration. The photoetched parts represent the solar panels and girders on the station. The blue foil represents the solar cells themselves. The instruction consists of exploded drawings for construction of each module, a final assembly drawing and a painting guide. However, they don't mention the shuttle ODS parts...
