Academy #0062001 Mercury Capsule Plastic Model Kit, 1/12 Scale
MRC, along with Atomic City Model Engineering, recreated a perfect miniature of this aircraft and its escape tower.
Measuring over 2 feet tall, this miniature piece of history is incredibly detailed with attention to detail that will astound you. The Mercury capsule's corrugated exterior is fully covered with rivets, engraved markings and every detail of the original. The interior detail contains the instrumentation along with a vinyl astronaut figure to add to the realism. The three rocket, red escape tower is there, too. As on the original, it would have rocketed the capsule to safety if there was a problem with the Redstone launch vehicle.
An impressive model which allows the space modeler to build any one of six legendary Mercury capsules.
