Two shots of my attempt from a couple of years ago. Figures give a good idea of scale to what is quite a "small" rocket. Small at least when compared to this. http://airfixtributeforum.myfastforum.org/about14146.html   http://airfixtributeforum.myfastforum.org/about15822.html

I think its 1/100.

Would you please tell us the height of the completed model? In metric measures, if you don`t mind?
My local shop has two in stock für 15 Euros each. It seems that they did not sale well for the full price.

Hi Marko, including the base to the tip of the aerial it’s 370 mm. The rocket alone is 220 mm.  :roll:

They're both great-looking builds.

Off to my LMS! For 15 Euros, it's a real bargain!

Did you use an airbrush? I read that the kit is made of red plastic. The red-white pattern must be difficult to paint with all these braces. :think:

All brush painted, red and white gloss on red plastic. I needed 2 coats of white and had to paint the inside of the bracing before fixing the two sides together. The rocket is white plastic.

Andy and 4D!

Great builds!  The rocket looks fantastic with the gantry!  What a great model! ... Awesome!  And what? ... Only about 15' total height?

Thank you!

Thanks for your kind comments and on other models on the site.

In imperial the gantry to the tip of the aerial is about 14.5 inches and the rocket just over 8.5 inches.
