This is a MythicCollectibles.com Pre-Order item and our Pre-Order Policies apply.
Imported from Japan! NASA modified a Redstone missile to create a 25.5m-long manned space launch vehicle that was designed to carry astronauts into space. The Redstone was selected because of its good safety record, and an upgraded Rocketdyne engine was combined with a Mercury spacecraft. Dragon's Space Collection now features a 1/72-scale readymade model of the successful Mercury-Redstone combination. The full rocket launch system is captured perfectly in miniature, and the Redstone rocket stems from all-new toolings. The Mercury spacecraft is perched atop the launch vehicle, and the surface pattern of the ablative heat shield is particularly well done. Mercury-Redstone program was an important step in space travel, and now collectors can make this journey too!
