Yeah, heard that a lot, distances were measured in Kt. No doubt locals
were not thrilled with American humor.
Would be a fun build though, remember it as a kid.
Interestingly there are some photos on the web of how it would crunch
cars, buildings, might make some interesting dioramas. What the heck,
its not real money when Base Legal writes a check for damages....
and the 1/48 Apollo CM/LM kit too !! whooeeee!
Before you get two excited remember this kit came out long before the first
landing - the CSM is Block I - Earth orbital test flights only. Block II
units went to the moon.
The LM represented the design with thin aluminum whipple shields/thermal
shields painted white and black. The final flight configuration used mylar
themal blankets. If they haven't changed anything this could be a scratch
builders dream. At least this suffers from what was known at the time of
relelase that became overcome by events in the program. Like the first
Monogram F-14 that was designed based on the full scale wooden mockup
Grumman had build as part of the proposal. The flight aircraft were
I'll probably try to build and fix this one. Working on the 8in SP Howitzer
now - trying almost out of the box. Not quite possible - like hollow road
wheels. But I'm not up to guys like Vink who scratch build 700 parts for a
kit that started out with 300 like the Atomic Cannon.
I can understand an early LM kit being inaccurate - but the Renwal Blueprint
models seem to be a unbelieveably inaccurate for the manufacturers claim of
designed from official blueprints.
