The Mercury Project

This was my first collaboration with Christophe, it showed me many new things and gave me the will to go deeper and deeper in my search, as for Chris’ needs.


The project was possible because of the high number of images available on the Web, and moreover by the good technical documents available (e.g. I found the US specs regarding the Mercury stencilling, giving the exact position, dimensions and colour of all the stencils written and drawn on the capsule).


So in a short time Chris was able to build the model of the capsule that brought in orbit the first US astronaut, with a level of detail hard to be seen in other models.
