The Convair SM-65D Atlas was America's first inter-continental ballistic missile, and was used as a first stage for satellite launch vehicles for half a century. The missile-topped variant was first first operational in October,1959. In  December, 1958, Atlas 10B put SCORE,  the first voice relay satellite and the first man-made object in space easily visible to the naked eye, into orbit. Later versions launched spy satellites, Ranger probes to the Moon, and interplanetary probes to Venus and Mars.  It also sent the first  Americans into orbit around the earth.

Horizon's exquisitly detailed kit consists of 36 injection-molded plastic parts.  It features:
  • Three different payload options
  • Pressure and fuel lines are molded separately
  • Recessed panel lines finely engraved
  • Sharply-detailed engine nozzles

A display stand, detailed assembly/painting/decal placement instructions, and decals for three different missiles (printed by Microscale) are included.
    
When finished, the model stands approximately 12½"/ 318mm to 13¾"/ 350mm tall (not including the display stand), depending on version chosen.
