Thor-Able Tiros Kit 1/48th Scale (24mm) only $55.00 plus $10.00 shipping!


This 3D printed kit is a scale model of the Thor-Able that launched the Tiros weather satellite. Modeled in 1/48th scale, this model is almost 22 inches tall and weighs in at 4.6 ounces without motor. The kit must be assembled using super glue and includes 7 parts, Tiros satellite shroud, upper airframe, keyed separation coupler, lower airframe with fins and launch lugs, D motor mount, 2 motor retention rings, and removable display engine bell. The model uses one D12-5 Estes model rocket  motor. The kit includes assembly instructions but no parachute or decals (the modeler must provide his favorite recovery system). The parts should be sanded with fine grit wet/dry sand paper and primed to achieve a smooth glossy finish. Sanding is quick and easy as the sand paper can be used wet and the model will only require a few minutes of sanding. The various parts of this model requires a combined 16 hours to print, Replacement parts will also be available should your model get damaged during flight.Thank you in advance for purchasing a Boyce Aerospace Hobbies product.
