    You are a man after my own heart, I have always wanted to build a 1:1 Mercury capsule but was scared to. Now that I see yours I might just have to rethink it and build one for myself.

    You are doing a great job, keep up the good work.

    Beautiful build!

    I would recommend offering to loan it to a museum for display (and hopefully some promotion).

    Great build.

    I wish I found this thread 6 months ago. I am also building this model. I had to fabricate many parts on my own. This would of been a great reference source.
    AWESOME!!! :inw:

    If you still have it, you could probably sell it. It would save a lot of time for a prospective builder. :)

    Shame you had to abandon it. A truly awe inspiring model.
