Classic kits vol.8: Vanguard Missile at Cape Canaveral

Vanguard Missile at Cape Canaveral
Glencoe models
US$24,00 plus shipping
Injected plastic model with  waterslide decals.
This is a another new release from Glencoe models that did not receive much attention from the modelling community. It is the Vanguard missile with a launch pad and tower. The original molds are from Adams Models and were released in 1958. Considering the age, they look nice inside the box. The scale is 1/76 for the Airfix fans. The launch pad  provided is basically the same you will see on the Thor kit even thought the kits were in differrnt scales. The box art is the same as the Adams original release. New decals were added with more detail then modelers got in 1958. Despite the suspicious scale components, the kit looks good enough for me to give it a Go! Lets see how it will end up.
