Sorry , I built this kit months ago and I guess I forgot to send in the article. I forget the scale and the manufacturer. What I do remember is the kit sat in its box for near 30 years before I built it. Many parts were badly warped. (to much light speed perhaps?) It was a lighting included kit, but all the wires had long since decomposed into uselessness.

The lights looked usable but I had a bunch of new lights left over from other projects, so I wired them up soldered everything and added a 9volt battery to power everything up. I drilled out easily over a thousand holes in this kit. You can't really see it with the flash photography, but sitting in the dark this model looks pretty cool.

Surprisingly the kit decals just needed to sit in the sun very a couple months to bleach out the brown on the decal paper. The decals actually worked pretty well and did not disintegrate on me.
