Made from high quality plastic vac-formed material, the same as the vac parts you see in many Dare kits. Most modelers will find them not difficult to detail and rather easy to assemble and paint. They are very realistic when finished per the instructions. We include with each set ordered, complete instructions on assembly and painting. Plastic model cement, acrylic or enamel paints are recommended however, polyurethane coatings can be used if applied in thin coats. Note: these are static models only! Installing model rocket motors is not recommended!
