Model Building

At any given time I am working on two different models, one at the museum and one at home. At the museum I am currently building a balsa wood airplane called the Pussycat which is powered by rubberbands. The model I was building at home is Gus Grissom's Mercury capsule, Liberty Bell 7. I finished it and despite the face that it is my very first plastic model and quite small, I think it turned out alright! Next up: The Unsinkable Molly Brown Gemini capsule.

Before and...


My model now rests next to the Apollo models that my dad made when he was a little boy.
