@The NYC Toy fair 2008 you tend to see companies with a variety of products, Precision Modelworks has stunning and unique models of various space capsules – Saturn vehicles, Gemini capsules and others from the Mercury missions – if you’re a space buff these might be the only (and best) replicas in existence.

In addition to their space, planes and warships they are also working on a kit that is made to scale with a real house so you can learn how to frame out a new home.

  1. That’s a Gemini capsule in the first photo, not a Mercury.

    And, it wasn’t the Saturn missions, it was the Apollo program. Saturn was the name for the launch vehicles used for both the Apollo and Skylab programs.
