Never started. The launch pad and service tower is complete with all parts. The missile is missing one of three tiny 'Control Cable Connector'. I had a resin reproduction made of the missing part and it is included. Includes all three decal sheets and instructions in excellent condition. Original tissue paper is included as well.
