Your Two Cents: NX-01 Shuttlepod

The following are reader's opinions of the NX-01 Shuttlepod made by Alliance.

Overall Rating       Good kit, but with some problems.
Comments This is a nice sculpt. The two problems I found were that there were rough edges around the stern that were difficult to sand (mainly around the details) and the wings were very delicate. Both wings on mine cracked during sanding so be careful.

Sanding overall is tricky because of all the small 'bumps.'

Note that the instructions do not specify a gray nose but it can be seen clearly in most photos on the web. Do a Google search for NX-01 shuttlepod - use Google's Graphic Search tool available on the Google toolbar to just search for pictures (you may need to add it by checking the box under options).

One other note. The model is of the Shuttlepod in flight. The six pads under the hull extend for landing. The Google search should give you a couple of reasonable pictures of the Pod with the gear extended. It's easy to add.
