Quick Looks

Manufacturer: New Ware
Name: Atlas SLV-3 ATDA
Scale: 1:144
Kit contents: 14 resin parts
Comments: This kit depicts the launch vehicle for the Gemini 9 Augmented Target Docking Adapter. The kit parts are beautifully cast with crisp details, a smooth surface finish and no visible airholes. The banding of the Atlas is nicely done as engraved lines. All parts, except for the engine nozzles, are solidly molded. The engine bells are nicely hollowed out. All parts are still attached to their pour plugs. The modeler will also have to remove a portion of the base of the nose cone as directed in the instructions. To completely detail the turbo exhaust, the modeler will have to provide either wire or rod. You won't use all of the decals, as the decal sheet is common among other New Ware Atlas kits. They include the checkerboard pattern for the ATDA. In addition to the graphical assembly instructions, the instruction sheet includes a short program history and a four view painting and decaling guide.
