Polar Lights has reissued another nice kit, the Jetsons' Capsule Car. Originally released about 10 years ago, this kit is a very quick build and features pre-painted figures of George and Astro. The original issue of the kit was titled 'Jetsons Spaceship' and featured pre-painted figures of George, Jane, Judy, Elroy, and Astro and that release sold out straight away. You can see a build review of that release here.
The kit is well-packaged with the clear dome safely bundled in bubble wrap and the two figures in their own protective packaging, You can see there isn't much more to this kit, so you'll probably spend more time painting this model though this really will look fine as-is.
If you're looking for a fun kit to help revisit your childhood or to interest a young modeler in a classic cartoon series, this is just the easy project you're looking for!
My sincere thanks to Round 2 Models for this review sample!
