Only 8 inches tall this micro scale model of the Titan
is made by Neubauer Rocketry which as far as we can tell is currently not
an active company. Too bad...it's a nice kit with a full body wrap so the
cosmetic details are all done for you. It took us about 2 hours and 2 beers
to build this. It flies on a 13mm motor and features streamer recovery.
Our model is too small to fit even one human astronaut however, the first
manned Gemini flight took place on March 23, 1965, lasted 04 hours, 52 minutes
31 seconds. Astronauts Virgil "Gus" Grissom and John W. Young
made three orbits around Earth.The only major incident during the mission
involved a contraband corned beef sandwich that Young had snuck on board.
The crew each took a few bites before the sandwich had to be restowed. The
crumbs it released could have wreaked havoc with the craft's electronics,
so the crew were reprimanded when they returned to Earth.
