Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Red Iron Models
Name: First Artificial Satellite "Sputnik-1"
Scale: 1:35
Kit contents: 6 resin parts
resin base
Comments: The resin parts are solid with crisply molded details and no visible air holes. All parts are still on their pour plugs. Their are two sizes of wire included. The smaller gauge wire needs to be straightened and cut to length to represent the antennae. The larger gauge wire is to attach the model to the included resin stand. The instructions consist of exploded view drawings with text callouts in English and Russian. There is no painting guide, but everyone knows the satellite should be a very shiny chrome.
