This is a replacement for the fore reaction control system thruster module on the Monogram 1/72 space shuttle kit. The thrusters ports are modeled as solid filled-in ovals. Ths is to permit modelers to simulate the overlying rain covers used in launch configuration with decals. Modelers wishing to simulate their shuttle without the covers, such as on orbit or at landing, should consider purchasing the RCS on orbit/landing insert model in my shop.
The difference between this modified version and the other version of the RCS insert launch config in my shop is that the areas for the thermal blankets is slightly more recessed, which is designed to accommodate the approximately 0.3 mm thick aftermarket blanket overlay created by Hotdog (link). Modelers who are not planning on simulating the thermal blankets with a modification such as this should purchase the other version of this part in my shop.
