Sale Price: $67.96

  • Model: MRC 62001
  • Manufactured by: Atomic City/MRC

Got a 5.833" diameter tube handy anywhere?  At 1:12 scale, that is what it would take to make a booster for this incredible plastic kit.  The long-awaited Atomic City Model Engineering Mercury capsule and escape tower is here in a box that you will stare at the contents of for hours when you first open it!  I know, I did!  Every washer, every rivet, every known detail is reproduced in a kit that faithfully replicates the Mercury capsule, retropack, and escape tower and assembles into a showcase piece that is over 2 feet tall! Complete decals, conversion tips, and instructions allow you to reproduce any of the six manned missions, including the slightly different capsule used on Alan Shepard's Freedom 7. Includes a fully detailed interior right down to the control panel molded in clear plastic with dial decals, so that you could even backlight the control panel if you were so inclined.  Also includes the escape tower complete with cables and manufacturer's marking decals, and a vinyl astronaut figure complete with all the umbilicals.

Oh, yeah, the retropack is here too, complete with detailed metal retaining straps.  This kit can be assembled so that the various stages of flight can be represented with detachable escape tower, retropack and other options. 

An incredible kit, getting harder and harder to find.  Get one while you can!

Note: This is a plastic model of the escape tower, capsule, and retropack ONLY. Over two feet long!
