vostok 1 Gagarin on launch pad at Baikonur, Mountford scale 1:1200 The photos include that unit of measurement of miniatures: a one pound coin. The kit is multi-media with a one-piece resin pad and terrain and several white metal parts for the rocket and gantry. I added a photo-etch "ligting tower" as seen in the few images available on Google. Most of the colour images from Baikonur are of more recent Soyuz or NASA cargo launches, with different colours and orientation of the gantries. All agree on a non-descript concrete/rust/sand colour for the terrain. My painting skills are not really up to the challenge, I tried washing thin greys and sands but in the end the colours come out too bright and sharp edged. Advantages Doesn't take up much space! Conclusion A nice little thing.
