Well, there are a couple of models (injection) of the Saturn V, the biggest
being the (IIRC) Monogram one, but Airfix and someone else have 1/144 scale
ones. There is also the Monogram "Man in Space" set that has the Redstone,
Atlas, Titan, Saturn 1 and Saturn V in 1/200 scale, there's the "All Systems
Go" Atlas with Mercury capsule and launch complex, there's the Gemini (big
scale, 1/32, I think), the Apollo CSM by a couple of manufacturers, some
include LEM, and there's the LEM as a 1/48 kit with lunar surface.
Many, if not all of these are probably out of production, but can be found on
e-bay, or on the shelves of a good hobby shop - quite a few were re-released
within the past decade.
There are also resin versions of the Redstone and Atlas, and I think the
Titan. Also resin capsules. If you want big, MPC is doing Captain Cardboards'
huge Mercury capsule. Check out Starshipmodeler.com (they have a Real Space
section) for sources.
The ESM 72 database for Rockets, Missiles and Spacecraft lists 439 kits and
models. This includes experimental rocket aircraft and military hardware.
A search shows the following for the three that you entioned:
Titan II with Gemini 1/73
K.R. Models-Cast Resin
Part Time Models-Cast Resin
Gemini B Capsule for MOL
Real Space Models-Cast Resin
Apollo Recovery Diorama
Atlas with Mercury Friendship 7
Gemini with Agena Docking Target
Redstone with Mercury
Titan II with Gemini
Apollo LCM 1/70
Apollo LEM 1/72
Apollo LCM/LEM 1/70
Your best bet is to get a copy of Creating Space by Mat Irvine and a
subscription to ESM 72.
if you see nay of that on shelves for reasonable money, say
$25 per kit, could you grab. if they will hold and you want
to ask me first, great.
and i will gladly look for anything you wish. retail here is
I'm almost sure this is a reissue, but Aoshima has just released an
Apollo Command/Service Module and Lunar Module in (I think) 1/40
scale. Don't know too much about this kit but I recall reading
something about the LM in Matt Irvine's "Creating Space: The Story of
the Space Age Through Models" book and it seemed like a decent kit and
it might be the largest commercially available injection molded Lunar

I saw on eBay that the good Japanese have some RealSpace from that period in
varying scales. Enter the key words "Kaiyodo space" and you should find a

1/72 Monogram and Revell. These are different but beware the Mono has

There is good aftermarket for this.
1/100 Tamiya, shuttle only.
1/144 Revell, Airfix/MPC, Entex, Bandai, Academy/Minicraft. With and
without boosters and tanks for all 3. Revell also makes a launch complex
sold separately and with the shuttle. Bring money and lots of display
space. Revell also sold with 747 as NASA Shuttle transporter
Lots of good aftermarket. Cutting Edge makes some outstanding decals
Lindberg, Monogram Snap kits. Hasegawa and DML with boosters/tanks,
crawler transporter. Probably the same kit.

Not sure what "unobyainium" eans, but drop me a e-mail for ESM 72 subscription
information. Can also supply information on Creating Space.
I don't mind archiving information, just be aware that I only work in 1/72
scale (and close to it). Creating Space covers all scales.
i was both, the long haired science freak. never fit the
straits, or the hippies. i bathed and worked, so the hippys
didn't trust me. i had hair, so the straits didn't trust me.
thank whatever the punk rock thing started in 75!
