This is the first build of the LLRV kit (that I know of) using the original soldered version displayed at the IPMS/USA 2013 National Convention. I added a few bits and pieces, primed it with rattle-can Mr Surfacer 1000 and finished it with Tamiya rattle-can Bare Metal Silver, AS-12. This is what I did with it in a few short days, and I'm actually quite happy with the result.
Only a handful of these kits were produced by Three Stooges Productions and sold out at the IPMS Nationals at the TAG Team Hobbies booth. A second production run will is underway and will be sold on the TAG Team Hobbies website though examples may appear on other venues as well. This a limited run kit and if you're a spaceflight modeler, this is one subject you don't want to let slip away.
