Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Futuristic Models
Name: Moon Suit
Scale: 1:16
Kit contents: 30 resin parts
7 clear resin parts
resin base
Comments: This particular figure with a rock in one hand and a hammer in the other is in a running pose on a nicely detail resin base. Most of the resin parts are solid: the exception being the main part of the suit which has space for the figure torso/head and hips. The parts are crisply molded with no visible air holes. There is some flash in the main suit window and a somewhat prominent seam on the main suit part that will need cleaning up. All parts still have pour plugs that need removal. The clear parts are mostly transparent. I don't know if a coating of Future will improve that. The instructions consist of multiple step exploded drawings. There is no painting guide, but the prototype suit (as depicted on the cover of the April 23, 1962 issue Life magazine) was white, with black gloves and boots.
