Correction to the Mercury-Jupiter variant, include the escape tower, the adapter transition is a ballast section and no RCS like the Gemini Titan II.

Great kit for repairing your Mercury Redstone, or Little Joe I Capsules. Wish Estes sold the components separately, like the 3 nozzle tree, or escape tower and or aero spike, since these are the most fragile parts, hint, hint Estes… I’m thinking about building a lesser known variant Mercury-Jupiter, which was the precursor to the Gemini Titan II, but smaller and no escape tower and a clear plastic fin set. Had the Mercury-Jupiter been extended in height, or stretched, The USA would have been 1st in orbit, narrowly beating the Russians, but no sense crying over spilt milk;-)
