This is the Pegasus 1/144 scale Luna Rocketship kit. I has 11 or 12 parts as I recall and no fit issues. I started this kit the same day as the Airfix Stuka I did for the BoB group build and had it built and primed in about a week. And there it sat, because I didn’t want another “boring silver rocket” on my shelf. After pitching out all sorts of plans to hang missile pods on it, I decided that the U.S. Air Force would take over the project and blast off into space hence the new owner.
The paint is Tamiya AS-12 Bare metal silver sprayed over Rust-oleum grey primer. The other colors are Testors enamels.
The decals are left overs from my Convair Atomic Bomber. Hey you can’t have a ’50s rocket without nukes right. 😉
P.S. The other “boring silver rocket” is the “Ark” from “When Worlds Collide”. At least it has a launch track.
