The Revell U.S. re-release of the 1/24 Gemini Space Capsule SSP (Selected Subjects Program) has hit the stores. The artwork is the same (astronaut EVA) but the side panels art is sadly gone.

The big plus is the new decal sheet that was in the Revell Germany release from last year that includes the nose shingles.

It's great to see this during Gemini's 50th anniversary year.

Now RealSpace needs to re-release their improvement kit.

LVM Studios makes a really nice interior detail set for the kit.

Just bought this kit. Will have to get hold of a detail kit to go with.

What is in the Realspace detail set? At least the LVM studio has images of the parts

The RealSpace add-on fixes all of the inaccuracies with the exterior of the kit. Thrusters, straps, radar, sensors, window covers, etc. You also get a piece that makes representing the gold thermal shield very easy. Here is a look at it.

There's one up for bid on eBay right now, if for some reason you can't get it directly from the RSM website.

Thanks. I did manage to find these shots after posting. So looks like both detail kits would be of benefit.

Model arrived just in time for Easter break. Pity I'm going away. What's the deal with this model though? No heat shield in the kit at all?

Looks like I will be buying one or two detail kits when I get back.
