This was another fun model for me ... using the Revell Gemini 1/6 scale kit of Ed White on his EVA, I modified the figure and made an AMU ( Astronaut Maneuvering Unit ) as well as a partial Agena.

This event did not happen, but I had a kit and some plastic and thought ... oh ... what the heck!  ;^ D

Yessir! The event is fictitious, but the hardware is actual ... that's how I measure my satisfaction, " ... does it look like the actual thing, YES? Then carry on mate!"

Thanx Mark!  ;- D

Baby steps in space. I didn’t know that the backpack maneuvering unit was being developed during Gemini. Your models continue to both inspire and educate.
