Mercury? What TV show was that from?
CBS News, 1961. :p

Space is space in my book.
Where would sci fi modeling be if the space program hadn't sparked all those 5-year-old imaginations in 1961?

Besides, Scott normally produces sci fi models. This is his first RealSpace kit.

Look at it this way, if we promote this kit, the captain prospers and the Moonbus project takes one step closer to being a reality. If that's not good enough then I propose taking the thread in this direction..... ahem... cough....My, wouldn't that kit make a good source of parts for all sorts of science fiction models....cough....? :thumbsup:

No, those were the escape pods from Robinson Crusoe On Mars.

or,

Where's the laser blasters on those things?

or,

Real Life Spacecraft? Are you trying to say the others are fake?

Sci-fi or not I've been anxiously awaiting this kit. It's been a long road but the light at the end of the tunnel is getting closer. I should mention that it's been a long road because Scott wanted to get it right. Don't have a problem with that. I would rather wait for an accuarate kit instead of one that's been rushed into production.
For those too young to remember this is where the real pioneering of space began. I watched all those Mercury and Geminii missions when I was a kid. Yes, the networks actually used to cover space missions back in those days. That was during the time when our space program actually had a goal.

Hey Scott,

Please make it BIG! Somewhere in the 30 inch long scale.

Thanks

The filming miniature for the Moonbus was just over 30 inches and it was 1/12 scale. Just how much are you looking to pay for a Moonbus??!!

The styrene kit will be 1/32 scale, or about 13 inches-- which is bigger than the Aurora kit.

I'm thrilled to hear you've got this kit out there, Scott. I suspect it's going to do quite well. Looking forward to it myself.

Can't wait to get mine in October. (Yes, I pre-ordered a year ago!) This is going to put that old Revell/1964 kit to shame!

Sadly, Squadron seems to require one create an account before one can order (which I avoid doing needlessly for security reasons). Will this kit be generally available since it's in a distribution channel?

[I also can't find a way to view anything else but the kit in Squadrons website...ick]

This kit will go into every hobby shop in the country and Canada-- where ever MRC normally shows up. You guys just need to bug your shop owners to order them!

Just go to the main site - www.squadron.com . You can hit "what's new" or do a search and see whatever you want.

Squadron's account only requires name, email and mailing address. You input your credit card number anew with each purchase; they don't keep it on file. I don't know how you ever expect to order anything online if you're gonna be paranoid about name and address.
