Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Rho Models
Name: Little Joe
Scale: 1:72
Kit contents: 15 resin pieces
1 photoetched part
Instruction sheet
Comments: The resin parts are solid for the most part... the rocket nozzles are hollowed out nicely. The parts have a very smooth surface finish, nicely engraved panel lines, and nice details. Unfortunately, the smaller booster nozzles were broken off during shipment of my sample, but they can be glued back into place. There are a few minor airholes on some of the parts. Two different Mercury capsules (boilerplate and production) and sets of markings are included to model either flight LJ-2 or LJ-5. This kit uses the same photoetched escape tower as the RealSpace Models kits. The instruction sheet includes a short program history, text assembly instructions, wraparound patterns for both capsules and their boosters, and detail drawings for the escape tower construction and painting. This kit is now available from RealSpace Models.
