MPC X2 Invader Build, Part 1, Parts
The parts were actually pretty good.
The tube one the left is flipped upside down, Marvin Martian should be at the bottom.
I was glad to see the NAR Membership Application included.
Those tiny black nozzles would be easy to misplace.
The main body tube feels like its made of convolute wound (not spiral wound) plastic. Enlarge the picture and you can see the interior seam running down the tube length.
The engine mount tube is rough. I had already gave the tube end a wipe of medium CA glue when the picture was taken.
These parts will be replaced, well except for the engine mount tube. I decided to use it.
The engine hook was easily bent, it wasn't spring steel.
The thin paper tri-fold mount won't be used.
