The Launch That Started It All…


May 5, 1961, a day that tested the strength and will of man. Project Mercury had three goals: to orbit a manned spacecraft around Earth, to investigate man's ability to function in space, and to recover both man and spacecraft safely. The success of the first launch, Freedom 7 paved the way for five more manned launches as part of Project Mercury, and the rest is history...

Bring home a piece of history with this 1/12 scale replica. From the escape tower to the crew cabin, no detail has been overlooked. The attention to detail will astound you. The capsule model reaches well over 2’ in length and makes a stellar addition to your space memorobilia collection.
