This is a classic subject of our childhood John. Love it.

1950's Classic Rocketship "LUNA". The kit has only 9 parts, two of them clear for the two portholes. the fit was real nice and tight. It went together in only 10 minutes. The seam haves were so nice no putty was needed, just a small amount of very light sanding was done. I will give it a good wash and ready for paint.
