Default Gi Joe Mercury LES Commission

Well, Gotta love how priorities can change overnight seemingly...

My Star Destroyer I'm afraid is going to have to take a back seat for the moment, as I've got a commission from a friend to build the Launch Escape System for his GI Joe Mercury Capsule.

http://www.customreplicas.com/store....em_kit&s=AMLES

This is the same company that produced the Rocketdyne F-1 engine I built for the same customer earlier this year. They've also got some sci-fi stuff in the works here:

http://www.customreplicas.com/

Since this is a paying job, right now this obviously has to take priority over my own builds. I've come up with a novel way to display it also, by scratchbuilding the adapter and upper portion of the Atlas rocket for the model to sit on. More on that later, so watch this space!

Thumbs up This will be KEWL!

Excellent Carlos! It's great to see some of Jim Key's kits being built! I can't wait to see more on the progress!

I LOVE REAL REAL SPACE PROGRAM STUFF!!!

I went ahead and added the thumbnail of the example from Jim's site for you since he is a member here.

A little trivia.... did you know the Apollo CSM's LES rocket had more thrust than the ENTIRE Mercury/Redstone stack? Cool, huh?

Thanks guys and thanks Kurt!

Yeah, Jim's stuff is great! The F-1 engine I built was a unique beauty to behold.

I'm going to be building this from the start of the Atlas booster transition upward.

See attached sketch and option on the far left.

BTW whenever he does finally kit that 1/12 Gemini, I'm going to literally goo myself. I simply must have one!

I didn't know that but I can see how it makes sense. Much heavier capsule with Apollo, and the extra thrust was necessary to pull it away from the rest of the vehicle in an emergency. Quite amazing.

Hey Scorp....love the pix, but I'd need a 24" Widescreen monitor to see 'em properly. Do you think you could reduce the dimensions down to a thousand-by at least? Thx!
