The Atlas-Agena first flew in 1960 and became one of the most successful US launchers. Based on the Convair SM-65 Atlas rocket, later re-designated SLV-3, it received an additional upper stage called Agena. Typically launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, FL, or Vandenberg Air Force Base, CA, it launched Mariner probes to Venus and Mars, Ranger and Lunar Orbiter probes to the moon, and later in its career, it launched military payloads including KH-7 reconnaissance satellites. But the Atlas Agena is most fondly remembered by space enthusiasts as the target vehicle for manned missions to low Earth orbit during the mid-1960s, as a testing ground for rendezvous, docking and spacewalking, in preparations for the manned flights to the moon a few years later. This model kit includes parts and decals to model the launch configuration of the Agena Target Vehicle that was used on many crewed missions to practice rendezvous and docking. It can also model the Augmented Target Docking Adapter (ATDA), who's shroud failed to deploy correctly during launch and was nicknamed the "Angry Alligator" by the astronauts that rendezvoused with it, at an altitude of about 300 kms above the Earth's surface.
