Quick Looks

Manufacturer: New Ware Space Kits
Name: R-7 Soyuz Pirs
Scale: 1:144
Kit contents: 52 resin parts
30 photoetched parts
Comments: The resin parts are solid with crisply molded details and finely engraved panel lines. The engine nozzles are hollowed out. There is some flash on the interstage lattice truss. All parts are still attached to their pour plugs. There are no evident airholes in the parts that I could see. Extra resin parts are included for some of the more delicate parts in case you break/lose them during construction. The photoetched parts are numbered for easy identification, as are some of the smaller resin parts. Not all of the photoetched parts are required for this model. You will need to provide some wire or plastic rod (not included) to finish detailing the model. The instruction sheet includes a short program history, multiple graphical assembly steps with details and a painting and decaling guide. In addition to the mission specific markings, a set of R-7 stencils is also included in the kit.
