I remember building this kit when I was a kid. I thought it was really neat. Then I had the brilliant idea to replace the Jupiter C rocket with Revel's Mercury/Redstone combination, which was at the same scale. I tried to make an enclosure for the Mercury capsule, similar to the old Surfside 6 enclosure, but discovered that wax paper could not be successfully painted or glued.
