Quick Looks

Manufacturer: New Ware
Name: Mir upgrade
Scale: 1:144
Kit contents: 196 photoetched parts
Comments: The kit parts are all photo-etched brass which are intended to supplement the Revell 1/144 scale Mir Space Station or Armageddon Russian Space Center kits, along with providing parts for the Revell 1/144 scale Space Shuttle kit. The etched detail on the parts is first-rate. The parts are numbered directly on the photoetched sheets and are referenced by those numbers in the instructions. Parts are included for all the handrails, solar panels, girders, the Priroda radar antenna, and the like. The instructions consist of several pages detailing how to fold the parts, how to modify the existing Revell parts to use the photoetched parts, and painting suggestions. A bit of decal (easy to miss) spelling the 'Mir' core module name is also included in the set.
