On March 23, 1965, Virgil I. "Gus" Grissom and John W. Young blasted off into space onboard the Gemini 3 capsule atop a Titan II Rocket. Gemini 3 was the first manned Gemini flight, and Grissom and Young made three orbits around the earth and returned to the surface after 4 hours and 52 minutes.
Revell originally captured the spirit of the Gemini program historic event in the 1970s with this great 1/24 scale kit. They rereleased the kit in the 1980s as part of their History Makers series of kits. Now they have rereleased the Gemini kit, with the original artwork on the box, in a Limited Production run.
I would like to thank Revell for returning this great old kit back into production.
In the Box
When you open this colorful, sturdy box you will find 93 parts, molded in white, on several sprues, plus a clear sprue with windows and astronaut face shields. There is also a very nicely done 12-page booklet of instructions and an updated decal sheet. Revell’s Gemini capsule kit features two seated astronauts, opening hatches, a fully populated equipment module and display stand.
