Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Rho Models
Name: Buran
Scale: 1:144
Kit contents: 10 resin pieces
decals
instructions
Comments: The kit parts are solid, with both raised and recessed details. There are some air holes. The instructions include a brief history, construction tips, a painting guide and many very good drawings to aid in assembly, painting and detailing. It is suggested that this be paired with the Rho-Models Energiya kit for the complete vehicle configuration at launch. My kit also included a color photograph of a completed and painted kit to aid in assembly and painting.
