Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Rho Models
Name: Proton-Vega
Scale: 1:144
Kit contents: 21 resin parts
1 photoetched part
stiff wire
instruction sheet
Comments: The parts have some pinholes that will have to be filled, otherwise the castings are very good with minimal flash and fine details. With the exception of the third stage part (which is hollowed out), the resin parts are solid with a smooth surface finish. The photoetched trusswork between the first and second stage make this an improvement over the earlier Rho Models Proton releases. The stiff wire is used to represent the strapon tank braces and can also be used to replace the out-of-scale fuel lines on the first stage engines, but only if you really want to... The instructions include a short history of the launch vehicle, text assembly instructions and side-view drawings. A text painting guide is also included.
Reference price: $30.00
