Red Iron Models Sputnik-1 Satellite Plastic Model Kit, 1/24 Scale


Red Iron Models Company's first foray into styrene model kits. Based in Moscow and previously associated with only resin models, this 1/24 scale kit captures mankind's entry into the Space Age. It was October 1957 when the Soviet Union launched Простейший Спутник-1 or Prosteyshiy Sputnik-1 into it's historic 92 day orbit around the Earth, and marked the elevation of the Cold War into the Space Race phase.

The 20+ piece model kit includes real brass antennae rods, a sheet of photo-etched parts, an instruction booklet in Russian and English, and a nicely illustrated box with a historical account.

WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals, including Styrene which is known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information, go to: www.p65warnings.ca.gov
