Review of Mars Liner plastic model kit

In 1997, a geek named Scott Van Aken wrote a cool review of Mars Liner, an injected plastic model kit originally made by Strombecker in the 1950s and re-released by Glencoe Models in the 1990s. Apparently, the real Mars Liner was part of Disneyland's Tomorrowland exhibit for many years. You can buy the kit off of eBay for about $13.

It's a nice - if simplistic - model. I bought the Glenco reissue when it was new. Simple lines, and I like the way the landing gear folds in. I toyed with the idea of building it with the gear 'in', but couldn't figure out how to display it.

Thanks. I found a link to the directions online (pdf) but wasn't able to download them.
