Howdy Y'all
I've decided what I will build for this campaign, a couple of Mercury rockets: the Mercury Redstone and the Mercury Atlas.



This is re-pop of the old 1:200 AMT "Man in Space" five rocket set. If I have time I will try to build more than the two Mercury rockets.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Got my ascent module mostly completed. Took all of about 20 minutes to put together, but needed quite a bit of filler on some of the underside seams.

The pre-coloured descent module will need some touch up.

Well guys,
2 nice entries so far and a proposal!
let me join this one too as I'm always fascinated by
space exploration and those brave missions. Especially Moon Landing was one of the greatest moments in human activity.
I can clearly remember watching the "11" show in front of a black and white TV screen when I was nearly 8.

And a few Years later I happily touched and examined the real Command Module while it was on tour and displayed at the annual "Deutsch-Amerikanisches Volksfest" in Berlin.

So, time to get hands on Revell's Columbia & Eagle kit with a moonlike display stand. Bought this kit long time ago (see Box print ), never too late for this.

Aside the base plate & stand and 3 "Astonauts" the kit offers a piece of metal foil . And the instructions advise you to cut some pieces of clear plastic for the windows as there are no clear parts


Anyway, that's the start:






















Cheers, Th mas

I should be getting Mercury Redstone by Horizon Models in few weeks, so that's what I'll be building.

I am in with this:



Immediately made a start since there's not a lot to the kit, but despite the instructions being literally a single sheet with three steps, Dragon managed to get the first step wrong, with two parts on the wrong sides, and two parts not even listed. Also, despite nearly a dozen paints listed on the front side of the page, the instruction side has no painting guidance at all.
