Mercury Capsule. Sigma 7, Wally Schirra, Oct. 3, 1962.

Atomic City 1:12 scale kit. This is a maddening kit. The parts they did are done extremely well, but some details are sadly lacking. For instance all of the wiring at the base of the escape tower is missing and could have been easily included as plastic parts at this scale. Yet despite leaving this off, they included photetch details for the retro pack straps. The interior is a joke. While a very nice astronaut figure is included, only the instrument panel and a stripped down rear bulkhead are otherwise depicted. Even the astronaut's couch is missing! On the other hand, the decals are excellent and easily sat down on the corrogated surface.
