Newcomer Horizon out of Australia brings us detailed Mercury capsules of America's first manned space program. Two full sprues allow you to build any of the manned capsules and choice of two "boilerplate" test capsule shapes. I did John Glenn's "Friendship 7" (with the escape tower) and Alan Shepard's "Freedom 7" and the two test shapes. Stands come with the kit.

Horizon has announced an Atlas/Mercury kit coming, too! Here's hoping they progress with a Gemini/Titan!

Fab! I'm still hoping to bag a 1/72 Saturn V at some stage (sic).

I'll be getting the Horizon Mercury/Atlas capsule/booster next week. Hope it's better than the old solid resin Realspace item.
