The Mercury 9 Rocket

Here are some images of Pegasus Model's 1/350 scale Mercury 9 Rocket.
This kit really lends itself well to dioramas.
The launch pad is from the Revell Saturn V 1/144 scale kit.

From the box:
"Bringing together some of the most talented artist's and designers in the industry, this series offers some of the coolest designs ever available in a model kit! (Well I wouldn't go that far).

This first featured artist is Scott Willis. A life long artist, Scott has an extensive art and design background which includes over 20 years of work in the aerospace industry, as well as consumer products and movie concept art design.

An award winning designer and long time science fiction fan, Scott brings an excitement and passion to designing every project he creates. Inspired by the classic TV and movie rockets of the 60's and 70's, the "Mercury 9" rocket is a modern take on the classic rocket designs he grew up with as a kid. Time for blast off!" 10! 9! 8!...

Belle realisation ce diorama, j'aime beaucoup l'ambiance '60s ( et j'ai reconnu aussitot le socle de la Saturn au 1/144, astucieux :)))
Cela fait quelques temps que je voulais acheter ce kit et maintenant en voyant ton travail, c'est sur, je vais l'acheter !

Il s'agit d'un kit amusant de construire. Je suis encore à essayer de trouver qui Scott Willis est bien. J'ai essayé de chercher son nom sur Google, mais jusqu'ici, je n'ai rien trouvé.
