Latest project, I'll link to my blog post that includes a little history of the mission: Gemini 9A and ATDA

The kit is the old Revell Gemini with the RealSpace Models resin update and Space Model Systems decals. I scratchbuilt the AMU, handholds and foot hold from plastic stock. The ATDA is the RealSpace kit with added navigation lights and the loose cable/wires that can be seen in some of the mission photos.

Very nice! 1/48 is big for a model rocket, even if only a small Redstone.

1/24 scale Gemini V built with the classic Revell kit, RealSpace Models detail parts, Space Model Systems decals and some scratchbuilding. Radar pod was modified from kit part, crew members were repositioned and leftover LVM photoetch used as a template to detail the door interior frams, plus putty work for the door storage pouches.

My take on Gemini 4 during Ed White's EVA in 1/48. The classic Revell kit with RealSpace Models parts, Space Model System Decals, Max Grueter's 3D printed figures, scratchbuilt hatch details and the patch design preferred by Jim McDivitt.

1/72 Challenger STS-7 completed. 90s-era Monogram issue with RealSpace Models payload bay and engine detail sets, RealSpace shuttle decals, Lake County Spaceport Standard TPS and Early Shuttle LRSI Tile decal sets. Used the medial tape method for the AFRSI on the OMS pods. Scatchbuilt payload details using AXMPaperModels downloads as templates for the satellite housings and payload truss and NASA photos for the SPAS-01 satellite and Getaway Special racks.

I love that Gemini with the wing. I have that kit and the manufactured wing kit, but I have zero confidence I can do it justice. I'd love to pay someone to build it someday. Sweet work on all these builds!

Modified the 1/72 Dragon Apollo 10 kit.

Corrected the docking windows on the CM, added navigation optics, hatch details, lift ring and the forward hatch. Bare Metal Foil was etched with a hobby knife to simulate the Mylar tape. nside of SPS engine bell sanded smooth on the SM and the hole for the steerable antenna plugged.

Surface details were added to the SLA using plastic sheet and strip. EVA handhold covers removed from BPC and optics cover resized. Cable trays and upper rockets added to the LES.

The wooden bases really enhance the great models.

1:6 scale Capt. Richard F. Gordon Jr on his Gemini 11 EVA. 1967 Revell Gemini Astronaut kit. Brass tube was built into the body for support.

The central cinch strap was fashioned from Aves putty and sheet plastic while the suit environmental t-connectors were made from plastic stock and aluminum tubing. The Extravehicular Life Support System (ELSS) chestpack was scratchbuilt from sheet styrene with the labels and control panel printed on a laser printer from published photos.

The umbilical harness was several gauges of electrical wire, tape, Aves putty, brass tube and plastic bits. The visor was painted with Rustoleum Metallic Bright Gold while the main suit was painted with Garagekit Colors acrylics.

The ELSS and umbilicals were painted with Tamiya acrylics. The base was from the Dragon Saturn V with the upright fashioned from 1/4" acrylic rod.
