FRiendship 7 complete
« on: 15 Feb , 2010, 00:29 »
I think I posted a link a way back to one of the posts on Finescale, but the project is complete and the guy does amazing work. Siara and a few others here could give him a run for his money i think, but amazing stuff, gthe level of detail..handmade toggle switches, etc.

I just got a Mercury model a few months back, it's in the queue. I hope to do half as well as this guy. I think I'm going for Gordo Cooper's ship. Everyone does Shepard as first, or Glenn as highest, but what about poor ole Grdo?

Peppermint - YUP! ;D

Hmmm, I don't know where the Mercury came form, my mate in the US bought it for me. Another mate here mentioned another release of it. It's a great scale, so I have to put a lot into it. I am relearning TIME MANAGEMENT.

Try this place (looks cool anyway): http://www.monstersinmotion.com/cart/military-collectibles-airplanes-helicopters-c-24_167/mercury-space-capsule-1-12-scale-model-hobby-kit-p-6598

oooh, cheaper, and this is where my mate got mine: http://www.activepowersports.com/mrc-62001-112-project-mercury-capsule-mrc62001-model/

No worries, SG!Love to share the Wow Factor.

excellent! wracked my brain...sometimes companies panic at "international" and just whack on double the price for shipping!
