I'm getting ready to get started on one of Sheri's Mercury Redstones. It does not come with a chute but recommends between 32" and 36"

I have nylon chutes in that range but wanted to see if anyone might offer a NASA style hemispherical chute with the red and white banding.

I'm not trying to duplicate the Mercury chute exactly, just looking for that NASA "flavor".

Any suggestions?

Spherachutes makes very good hemispherical parachutes in nearly any size you want and you can specify color pattern. Very resonably priced. http://spherachutes.com/

John drop me a pm. I still have patterns for a 36" hemi chute and can make it red and white with white cords.
