Quick Looks

Manufacturer: New Ware
Name: R-7 Voskhod
Scale: 1:144
Kit contents: 53 resin parts
39 photoetched parts
Comments: This kit can be built to represent the launch vehicle for Voskhod 1 or Voskhod 2, the only external differences being the airlock shroud and a different paint scheme on Voskhod 2. The resin parts are solid, with the exception of the rocket nozzles, which are nicely hollowed out. The parts are molded with crisp details and finely engraved panel lines and a smooth surface finish. There are no visible air holes in any of my parts. There is some flash around the interstage truss. All parts are still attached to their pour plugs. Extra parts are included for some of the more delicate bits, such as the vernier rocket nozzles and the booster cross braces. The decals are a set of R-7 stencils. The instructions include a short program history, multiple graphical assembly steps with detailed sub-steps, finished off with a decaling and painting guide.
