OSC Launcher kit resources

The OSC kit includes both of Orbital Sciences' Corp. light launchers; the air-launched Pegasus XL, and the larger Taurus (large-fairing version).
The Taurus stands 8 1/4" tall (Pegasus is 4 1/4" long) and includes 5 resin parts, decals, and instructions.

        The completed models.

        Those of you with a B-52B model (where did you find it?) might want to model a standard Pegasus instead of the longer, L1011-dropped, Pegasus XL.  No problem; this is an easy hack to do!  There are two steps:
            1.  Break off the downward-canted fins on the Pegasus; re-attach them so that they're level and centered on the  body tube.
            2.  Using a hacksaw, remove 0.125" from the second stage at the forward end.  Do this by removing the payload fairing, shortening the second stage, then re-attaching the fairing.

        See how easy that was?
