Quick Looks

Manufacturer: New Ware Space Kits
Name: Mercury Redstone - Liberty Bell 7 LV
Scale: 1:144
Kit contents: 11 resin parts
9 photoetched parts (includes extras)
Comments: The resin parts are solid, with crisp details, finely engraved panel lines, a smooth surface finish and no visible airholes. All parts are still attached to their pour plugs. The Mercury capsule represents Gus Grissom's Liberty Bell 7 which represented the orbital version of the spacecraft. Extra photoetched parts of the escape tower and Redstone antennae are provided, which is always nice. The instruction sheet includes a short program history, an exploded assembly drawing with inset details and a four-view painting and decaling guide. Alps decals are provided for the Liberty Bell 7 specific markings, including the crack.
