One cool thing in the Transwing kit - a plastic triangle that snaps onto
the launch rod to hold the pod up and hold the igniter leads out of the way.
It seems to me that the design staff would like to do more, but is held
back by the requirement to sell 10 zillion of every kit to the novice

Hard to believe the Mercury Atlas kit ever saw the light of day. :(
