Beautiful!  I have the recent re-release of the Gemini.  Does Real Space have a shield for that larger scale version?

Don,

Thanks.

Yes they do. They have the shield, corrected thrusters and the proper end caps for the radar etc. And you can get the Space Model Systems decals in 1/24th from the CultTVMan website.

You'll want those for the adapter section stripes from the early flights or the velcro patches from the later ones.  

CultTVMan also offers a 1/24th Gemini cockpit detail set.  It costs twice the price of the kit, but if you plan to display the spacecraft with the hatches open it will make a difference.

Thanks Everyone!

Steve, If you plan to use the Real Space replacement parts, allow time for them to fill the order.  If you never used them before, they can take longer to ship an order than other sites.
