Vanguard and Explorer 1

Recommended Posts

Created by Rob Schorry, and casted by Real Space Models, the kit are 1/24 models of Vanguard and Explorer1. Sometimes 1/24 will get you a giant vehicle and sometimes the tiniest thing.  I think this is the smallest model I ever built. ;)  LOL

Doing Vanguard first, the kit comes in 2 parts of resin and 6 pieces of wire. All that needs to be done is sand down the sphere halves a little (I guess I could have gone a little further but didn't want to ruin it).  After sanding, the parts were glued together, and then it was ready for paint. I didn't have any gloss primer so I used regular black. When that was dry, I applied some gloss, getting it ready for the Molotow chrome Paint Pen. The chrome is terrific!! Instructions say to leave the solar cells black, so the next and final thing is to glue the 6 pieces of wire in place. And that's that. Explorer 1 next...

It's an excellent addition to my early 1/24 set of probes. Thanks for looking.

Thanks Duke! 🙂  Posting it around I got a lot of comments on the size, so I took this pic -
