This is a detailed, textured model of the NASA Mercury ‘Liberty Bell’ capsule with Redstone delivery system. Capsule interior and controls are included, as well as most internal components to the Redstone. Bonus ‘Friendship 7’ texture is included. Note Friendship 7 was launched atop an Atlas.
Detailed bump and color maps are provided. All texture maps are available as layered Photoshop composite files, allowing you to re-mark or weather as needed.
Mercury 4 was a Mercury program manned space mission launched on July 21, 1961 using a Redstone rocket. Its capsule was named Liberty Bell 7 and performed a suborbital flight piloted by astronaut Virgil I. 'Gus' Grissom. It reached an altitude of over 118.26 statute miles (190 km) and traveled about 300 miles (480 km). The Redstone was MRLV-8 and the spacecraft was Mercury spacecraft # 11, the first one with a centerline window instead of two portholes.
