true.That is looking real sweet!
It would be nice if they brought back all the rocket kits that started it all.
And the shuttle with full stack.
And, the new ones if they can get the rights to produce them.
One has chances on Ebay once in a while to get the older ones, but I could never afford them for what they go for.
That's the line representing the Liberty Bell, which was the name of the capsule. The flight was MR-4 and the capsule was named Liberty Bell 7, Gus Grissom was the astronaut.Is the capsule cracked. I noticed the white line? Maybe I'm seeing things?
The Gemini capsule is a 1/35 scale turned by Gordon/Sandman. The adapter skirt is from a 1/48 paper model, rescaled.
I used the tubing from the Mercury Atlas to size a PVC mandrel, and I'm wrapping my own paper tubing - since the Titan II body and the Atlas body are the same size.
Scary thing - the tubing is also about 1% of the correct size for a 1/100 Space Shuttle external tank - using the Guillows glider.
So no - not a kit.
