    Hello all. I am a bit of a lurker here, but I figured I'd show off a couple of the models that I just finished.

    The first is the Gemini-Titan from the Lower Hudson Valley Gift shop.

    The second is a Mercury-Redstone from Erik te Groen.

    The only change worth mentioning here is that the escape tower on the Mercury was a custom build that I whipped up from the pattern of the 1/48 scale model from Card in Space. I was worried about the thinness of the spars, but it turned out great.

    So, what do you think?

    Superb job!

    You did a excellent job on the escape tower on the Mercury Redstone.

    I look forward to seeing your launch pad for the MR when you get to it.

    Thanks for sharing your photos with us.

    Cheers!
    Jim

    Thanks. I should be getting to the launch pad in a few days, so hopefully in a week or so I'll be able to post it.
