Real space sculpter Ignacio Bernacer Alpera will come soon with a very nice new 1/12 Gemini astronaut resin kit in spacewalk theme. Very nice model!

It looks like this Gemini astronaut is still on the ground, with the rubber boot overshoes and suit a/c unit used when going from the suit-up room to the Gemini capsule. Will the final product include the umbilicals, camera, maneuvering gun etc. used during his EVA?

Unfortunately I'm not the lucky owner of this one but it's something I'll be adding to my collection at some point.

Just finished my paint-ups of the Gemini and Mercury astronauts. I repositioned Ed White's right hand, and tried to resculpt the head of the Mercury astronaut to resemble Gus Grissom.

The castings were very good, with just a little flash and slight seams to deal with. The poses are great, and I'm quite happy to have these as part of my collection.

They look both great! Well done!

Here my one, I really was doubt about suit color, did see many Gemini suit photo, show it has little touch of chapmpange color.
