Quick Looks

Manufacturer: RealSpace Models
Name: Mercury Detail Set - Window Version
Scale: 1:48
Kit contents: 16 resin pieces
Instruction sheet
Comments: The resin parts are crisply molded with excellent detail. The parts are still on their pour plugs which will have to be removed before use. The kit is to be combined with to parts from the 1/48 scale Revell Mercury kit to model the orbital model of the Mercury capsule first flown by Gus Grissom. The parts include the escape rocket motor, nozzles and jettison motor, nose parts for both launch and on-orbit configurations, instrument panel and an entire main spacecraft body (the hatch isn't used in this configuration. Use the kit part instead). The instruction sheet includes detailed direction on part placement and which parts to use, depending on the configuration of the spacecraft you are modeling, along with a painting guide.
