Imported from Japan! Project Gemini was designed to develop space travel techniques with a view to putting man on the Moon under the subsequent Apollo project. One of the highlights of Gemini IV was the first American spacewalk in June 1965. Dragon's 1/72-scale Space Collection model commemorates these groundbreaking Gemini spaceflights. The model includes a Gemini spacecraft as well as a spacewalking astronaut. The hatch is shown open, allowing a good view of the interior of the cramped spacecraft. The two astronauts are extremely well sculpted in this scale - one performs a spacewalk while tied to his 8m-long tether, and the other is monitoring proceedings from inside the capsule. Such a legendary scene has been captured poignantly in this fine new model!
