Instruction sheets needed for 1950's Rocket Kits
« on: September 12, 2023, 05:41:59 AM »
Hi all

I've  just brought the following  kits on eeee-bay (the Yorkshire version dont cha know) but the do not contain  any instructions.





Making it difficult to check if there are missing parts .

If anyone out there has this kit or the instructions I will be eternally grateful if you would send me a scan.

All my usual lines of enquiry have come to nowt, but I can confirm they are the 1958 molds.

Thanks

Mog

No problem, I have free time a gift for finding rare stuff with google :P Just make sure to post your builds here when you make them, they look like quite unique kits.

Also here for the Revell and here for the Thor

Ninfinger has a great list of space models some with PDFs of the instruction sheets.

Thanks for your help guys.

Both kits have some parts missing, but nothing that would stop them from being built.

Given my current display  space they are a bit big so they will enter the stash for now. I may sell them on at a later date depending on future circumstances.

PS: that Ninefinger site is pretty impressive. I need to take a cup of tea and a sarnie whenever I next explore.   ;D
