last week have visit katong model shop , saw the classic Airfix "2001 space odyssey model" name as "Orion" in scale of 1/144, the price is $58.95 , is make in U.K. during year 1980, but the condition is super good !
now talk about the model kit , surprise the kits is in white colour and it still very white and super white , the decal also in very good condition, and the kits doesn't have any ward parts.
but still need some putty work , i didn use the colour decal from the box art , i select the Pan American as from the orignal movie (white version) , below ae the completed model.
Here is by "Michael Dentzer" from www.starshipmodeler.com/2001/md_orion.htm , is very nice.
almost forgot to mention , his kits is from "Aurora".
