This Builders Kit also includes a detailed interstage with visible first state upper tank dome.

    Some key thoughts about this kit.

    The nozzles also serve as motor retainers, just put motors in and screw down nozzles to lock them in place.

    Special snap on clear fins for flight, with lock tie backup. No more cutting slits in to main body tube or sliding a hard to glue plastic one over the main body tube.

    Adjustable weight compartment in the Gemini Capsule itself.

    Very little painting due to full body skin.

    Very detailed Turbo pump assembly.

    Closer to scale motor tubes as compared to a BT70 based kit.

    Complete 2nd Stage assembly for display or show and tell.

    Just a few of the really neat stuff in this kit.

    Hope Alex follows it up with the Titan II icbm version or at least the icbm nose cone:)

    I would say the very best kit by far to date!
