Hi, all,

What are the part need from these kits and is there anyone in the group doing the required parts from these kits in resin for to build a 44" eagle

There's a lot of Gemini pieces on the passenger pod too.

Default Apollo Saturn V Kit and Gemini Kit

So since posting last I have been out bid several times on both of these kits on E-bay, If can get hold of one of each of these kits I can make some RTV moulds to make resin peaces from after, Is there anywhere else to try for either of these kits. does anyone know?

I got a couple of 'new' the Revell 1/24 scale Gemini kits from a hobby store in Aus. Despite the post the purchase price was more than reasonable, partly due to the strength of sterling. I see if I can find out were I bought them from. Hopefully the box they came in is still lurking somewhere.

Try the second hand kit dealers like Plastic Pastimes, Collectakit, King Kit, Kit Krazy etc.

Default Gemini Kit 1/24

Hi All,
Successful at last with the Gemini kit on E-bay,
Just the Apollo Saturn 1/144 to get.
What is the prefered material for making the four leg pods up?

The original studio model used wooden cores clad in 1/16th acrylic. Obviously you can use whatever material you prefer.
