This replica is signed by James “Jim” Alton McDivitt, a former NASA astronaut and engineer who flew in the Gemini and Apollo programs. He commanded the IV flight in which Edward H. White performed the first U.S. spacewalk, and later the Apollo 9 flight.
The Gemini program took its name from the two-star constellation of Castor and Pollux.
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.
