Project Mercury was the United States' first foray into crewed spaceflight.  Twenty unmanned developmental flights (some using animals), and six successful flights by astronauts were conducted between 1958 and 1961.

Horizon's exquisitly detailed kit contains parts and decals for any of the Mercury-Atlas missions.  consisting of 54 injection-molded plastic parts, it features:
  • Parts to build boilerplate, porthole or window versions of the capsule
  • Highly-detailed surface detail on the capsule, with shingles and bolts finely reproduced
  • Pressure and fuel lines are molded separately
  • Recessed panel lines finely engraved
  • Sharply-detailed engine nozzles

A display stand and a fret photo-etched steel details are provided .  Comprehensive assembly/painting/decal placement instructions, and decals for all 26 missions (printed by Microscale) are included.

When finished, the model stands approximately 13¾"/ 350mm - 16¼"/ 412mm tall  (not including the display stand), depending on version chosen.
