1/156 Convair Shuttlecraft

Posted by Paul On May - 6 - 2000

5/6/2023 I've just finished this model of a space shuttlecraft by Convair.  This model kit was first issued in 1958 by Revell.  The kit I purchased on Ebay had very poor decals, so I just left them off.  I think it looks better withour them anyway.  The fit of the parts is crude, about what you would expect from a kit of this age.  Following are images of the box and description included with the instructions as well as construction photographs.  I painted it with Tamiya grey surface primer, then Tamiya X-14 sky blue.  This was followed with Alclad chrome, then Alclad blue and finally Tamiya X-11 chrome silver.
