Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Fantastic Plastic
Name: Lockheed-Martin Mars Ascent/Descent Vehicle
Scale: 1:144
Kit contents: 23 resin parts
sheet styrene
Comments: This is a 2017 concept vehicle put forth by Lockheed-Martin as a direct descent/ascent rocket for the exploration of Mars. The resin parts are molded with crisp details and a smooth surface finish. There are no obvious airholes on any of my parts, but there is a bit of flash the will need cleanup. Some of the parts are still on their pour plugs and all parts will need a bit of cleanup to the mating surfaces. The sheet styrene is to depict the optional open solar panels. The instructions are multi-step photos showing the basic construction. There is a painting and decaling suggestion section, but since this was a concept vehicle many decals have been provided for you to let your imagination take hold.
