This is our first purely static scale plastic model kit. The Vanguard space launch vehicle was designed to launch the first American satellite into orbit. Unfortunately, it failed to accomplish its mission with only 4 out of 10 flights considered successful. Since this is a static model we printed it in more pieces (because the fun of a plastic model kit is in the gluing). Our model of the Vanguard comes in 6 pieces for easy assembly. The parts should be wet sanded and primed prior to painting to achieve a smooth finish. Thanks in advance for purchasing a Boyce Aerospace Hobbies product.
