This project lasted one year. So many times I thought I'd give up that I canít remember, but I finished! With a little inspiration from the film ROCKY.

Tamiya released this model in early 1980ís when I was a baby. Itís a nice model by the standard of itís time, overall shape is highly accurate, and the fit is good, with raised panel lines, a simple but accurately shaped PEGASUS engine and synchronized nozzles, whichís fun but a bit tricky to build, and doesnít work well when finished after finishing, especially hand painting.

Enjoy modelling!
