Model Details





As with the Thor ICBM this will be the first time this kit has been available for many, many, years

Originally made by Adams in 1958, this has never been reissued until now

The kit is nominally 1:76 or 00 scale, so suitable for many types of railroad layouts, and close to the most common aircraft scale
