Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Stratosphere Models
Name: McDonnell Douglas DC-X
Scale: 1:48
Kit contents: 3 resin pieces
4 styrene pieces
4 vacuform pieces
4 metal pieces
Comments: My copy of this is a hand-made prototype of the production version. The production version will be hollow cast, according to the manufacturer.

The main body is cast as three parts: two fuselage halves and a bottom piece. The landing gear are cast metal and should support the weight of the rocket with no problem. The landing pads are vacuformed. The body flaps are included as separate pieces and are matched to numbered locations on the fuselage. No instructions were included with my copy, but assembly is pretty easy to figure out without them. A photo of the actual vehicle is included on the boxtop to help as a painting guide. You'll also probably want to find other photos to use for reference.
