Gemini IV was the first multi-day space flight by the United States, designed to show that it was possible for humans to remain in space for the length of time required to fly the moon and back.
Crewed by James McDivitt and Edward White, the Gemini IV not only set a record for flight duration, but White also performed the first American space walk, floating outside the spacecraft while tethered to it, for approximately twenty minutes.
This museum quality Gemini IV capsule model comes complete with stand.
Master craftsmen, working from three-dimensional drawings, handcraft each model from either the finest Philippine mahogany or state-of-the-art composite. Each model is shaped with remarkable precision and attention to detail. Several stages of fine sanding, between primer coats, produce a smooth finish ready for final painting. Talented artists using ultra-fine brushes and decals, paint the nose art, stripes and markings. A final coat of clear polyurethane provides lasting protection and brilliance.
