Gus Grissom Memorial Mercury/Gemini

Kit: Gus Grissom Memorial Combination Monogram kit

Scale: 1:48

Contributor: Robert Parkin

Spacecraft:  Mercury Freedom 7 and Aurora Gemini Capsules.

Instructions- The Gus Grissom Memorial Combination Monogram kit is 1:48 scale and comes with two collector patches. Although the kit looks a bit intimidating when you first open it up because you are looking at two different models together.
I hand painted the models with Testors enamel paints and they assembled without any major problems. The stand is pretty small for the Gemini model and my model fell over and broke from the stand.
