Airfix Catalogue description:

Space fiction is taken to new dimensions with this exciting four-in-one kit. A multi-mission spaceship, Starcruiser can operate as an independent self-contained unit, having as it does, a reconnaissance pod, an intercepter, an attack unit and a command base, each one detachable and capable of being used separately. All these are in the kit making play and diorama situations almost limitless.
