Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Rho Models
Name: Progress M conversion
Scale: 1:144
Kit contents: 3 resin pieces
5 photoetched parts
thin rod
Instruction sheet
Comments: This kit is meant to be used with either the APEX Sputnik or Vostok kits as the base. The parts include the new upper stage and the nose shroud for the spacecraft. The resin parts are solid, with a smooth surface finish and no sign of pinholes. The details are crisply molded and the panel lines are recessed. The photoetched parts are to replace the out of scale and difficult to bend parts of the Apex base kit for the interstage trusswork and the booster attachment struts. There are extra booster attachment struts included in case you need them. The thin rod is to add the booster pipes for the first stage core vehicle, which are missing on the APEX kit. The instruction sheet contains detailed instructions on how to convert the base kit into the Progress M launch representation. A profile drawing supplements the text. A text painting guide and color photograph of the finished model complete the kit.
Reference price: $15.00
