This is TMRK's first kit. Here is the original test version of one of NASA's
oldest launch vehicles that was still in use up until a few years ago. In this version, at 72' (21.9m) high,
this 4-stage launch vehicle had 107,200 lbs. (476,850n) of thrust at liftoff. It
could carry a payload of 570 lbs. (260kg) into low earth orbit, or a payload of 85 lbs.
(39kg) to the moon. This kit employs a variety of modeling skills, including a paper
wrap reducer and tail cone. Long, slender and impressive, this 1/30th scale kit is
fun and challenging to build, and makes a great addition to your scale collection.
