Here is quite a good review, with a few words about the 1/110 scale business.

I have this kit but have not started it yet. Whilst researching how to build it I found that the basic rocket assembly and gantry is quite good but the approach ramp is far too short, making the angle virtually impossible for the semi-trailer tanker to ascend it. There are plenty of photo's on the web, which should allow for the length of the pad to be extended correctly.

I would recommend getting this kit if it is still available.

Here are some links showing the pad:
