Just a quick note to say that I have 14 of the Mercury Control Center acrylics available. Price is $69.95 plus postage and handling. The rest have been purchased by folks on the regular acrylic mailing list.

I might add that Dr. Chris Kraft was very happy to have received acrylic 1/60.

And I might add that Joel Katzowitz was very happy to have received acrylic 33/60.

Thanks J.L., another beautiful piece of space history.

Perhaps my favorite one of all of them yet. Can't wait to see what is on deck.

I do have some additional Mercury Control Center and Pad 5 material. The Pad 5 material is the larger type that was used in the "A" version of that particular acrylic release. I was thinking about putting something together that would contain both artifacts.

Any interest in this?

Yes, I'm in for one! Would make for a great piece next to my Mercury capsule model and astronaut photos.

Thanks all for the responses. The wheels on this project have been turning a bit the last few days. The possibility now exists for production of an acrylic with artifacts from Complex 5, Complex 14 and the Mercury Control Center. A real Project Mercury themed piece. I need to work out the details yet and figure out how many units can be produced.

I will release additional details as soon as I can. Eventually I will ask everyone interested to e-mail me directly so that I can put a solid reservation list together.

We will soon have a limited number of additional Mercury Control Center acrylics available. They will look the same as before, and also be priced at $69.95.

There will be very few made available, so please contact me ASAP if you are interested.

The Retro Space Images website should be updated by tonight.

The Retro Space Images website has been updated. You may place orders for the Mercury Control Center acrylic now. In order to guarantee getting an acrylic, I recommend placing an order by Friday 10/25/13.

Just a quick update on the MCC acrylics. The manufacturer is running a bit behind with end of year orders. I am anticipating a delay of about three weeks. Will post with any additional info, but will certainly get the orders out the door as soon as the product arrives!

Just got mine in. Spectacular. One piece of advice however. You mailed mine in a padded envelope. You need to put a piece of tape across the flap. I got mine and the flap had come open. Fortunately the box did not slide out, but it could have easily done so.

Every acrylic since day one has been mailed in a padded envelope. I guess the post office is getting a bit more careless...

My apologies. I guess I should look into boxes instead.

The envelope is fine. When you glue the flap to close it, stick a piece of tape over the flap so it won't come open. It was not the post office, it was the envelope. The gum(glue) on the envelope did not keep it closed this time.
