Manufacturer: Red Iron Models
Name: Vostok-1 Soviet Spacecraft with Interior
Scale: 1:35
Kit contents: 68 resin parts
resin base
58 photoetched parts
clear sheet plastic
metal rod
Comments: The resin parts are beautifully cast with crisply molded details and no visible airholes. The re-entry cabin has a really nice hexagonal pattern molded in place. All parts are still on their pour plugs with identification numbers molded in place for easy part identification. The photoetched parts are also identified by numbers etched next to the parts. The graphical instructions are broken into subsections. The interior parts come as a separate little kit with their own multi-step graphical assembly instructions. The wire is to be cut and formed according to the templates in the instructions. The metal rod attaches the finished model to the resin base. No painting guide is included, although the drawings on the box cover can be useful for that.
