Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Red Iron Models
Name: Voskhod-2
Scale: 1:35
Kit contents: 71 resin parts
resin base
57 photoetched parts
brass tubing
metal rod
clear acetate
Comments: The resin parts are beautifully cast with crisp details and no visible airholes but some flash that will need cleaning up. All parts are still on their pour plugs. The smaller parts have their part numbers molded on the pour stubs for easy identification. The photoetched parts have their part numbers etched next to them on the photoetched sheet. The instructions consist of multi-step exploded assembly drawings calling the parts out by their numbers. Where required, folding instructions are shown for the photoetched parts. The instructions are common to both the Voskhod 1 and Voskhod 2 kits, so you'll need to pick the proper steps to use for the Voskhod 1. The wire and brass tubing need to be cut to proper lengths for additional details. I can't find any reference to the clear acetate in the instructions, but I assume it's for the two portholes that are in the crew cabin. Even though the crew cabin is hollow, there is no interior provided in this kit. No painting guide is included, although there's a color drawing of the spacecraft on the box cover that could help some.
