Ordering Multiple Patches

 

I will be unable to ship orders placed between July 20-July 28 until July 29.

I have made some adjustments to the shipping options. Due to major increases in USPS First Class international rates, international customers have the ability to choose non-tracked shipping to bring their cost down. The option for tracked is still available at the new, higher rate. (First class USPS package with tracking to Europe is now $15)

I will still have to manually refund you for combined shipping when you place an order with multple items.

This model is a 3D printed 1:1 scale replica of a Langley Research Center Mercury Spacecraft wind tunnel model. This model was sold at auction in 2009 for almost $10,000, but this highly acurate model can be your for $30 + shipping! The model is shipped as a kit as the parts are a bit too delicate to ship as a completed model. The kit comprises of approximately 20, printed-in-color parts made of PLA and Silk PLA. The kit includes a tube of superglue and a jig for setting the main truss of the Launch Escape Tower. The assembled spaecraft and base stand about 12 inches tall.

This is a 3D printed item and will have some artifacts and imperfections that are a part of the 3D printing process. 

 

Ham the Astro Chimp was launched on a sub-orbital flight on January 31, 1961 atop a Mercury-Redstone rocket as part of Project Mercury. The name “Ham” was given to the chimpanzee only after his successful mission. NASA was concerned with the potential of bad publicity surrounding the possibility of a failed mission with a named chimp on board, so until after his mission, Ham was known as “No. 65” and among his handlers, he was known as “Chop Chop Chang”.
