And on the last pages was image of "Yury Gagarin". The vessel looked like a spaceship for that time and made a big impression

I picked up the kit a few weeks ago form GPM.

It looks like as solid design and would really really benefit from the Laser Cut accessories . There are a lot of intricate truss and structural members.

However my copy had an excessive serious amount of "Overprint"(What I call where the ink bleeds over the intended area) as well as patchy quality/faint ink coverage to the large inked areas. In comparison to todays Haminksi and GPM quality (As well as the same companies previous perfect release of "Peter the Great") I was a little disappointed.

My situation changed soon after I ordered the kit (better job in London) so I will not be building it any time soon but I would love to see it being built.

Best of luck Herky!

Thanks
John
