P/E for the old Revell 1/110 Atlas Booster and Launch Pad
Posted by mstazz62 on Monday, September 30, 2019 2:23 PM

Greetings fellow modelers!

I finally found my old sample of this kit half built in my basement and I want to really go "Whole Hog" on it - Bare Metal foil on the rocket, detail up the launch site and make it into a cool diorama. I saw on Britmodellers site a guy who is really going all out on his build - I liked what he's doing and I am going to try my hand on a similar display.

I saw there is a photo-etch set for the launch gantry made by LVM Studios - but just try and find one!! Does anyone know where (hopefully) I can get one?

Thank you so much for any help and happy modelling!

Mark

LVM Studios has a Facebook page. Have you tried contacting them via facebook to see if there is any way to get one?

I have a hard time covering a large area with BMF.  Last two Atlases I built I used Alclad. I found it easier than foil.  Only hard part is getting a perfect gloss black undercoat.

Checked that out on my phone yesterday when I saw the OP. Looks like there isn't anything more recent than 2017---not a good sign!

Mstazz62, good luck with your hunt.
