Jebediah Kerman

This is a large scale figuring of the brave and green kerbalnaut Jebediah Kerman from the popular space program and rocket simulator game, Kerbal Space Program! My version of Jeb has him decked out for E.V.A. (extra-vehicular activity) with his helmet on and his jetpack at the ready!

In Squad's own words:

"In KSP, you must build a space-worthy craft, capable of flying its crew out into space, without killing them. At your disposal is a collection of parts, which must be assembled to create a functional ship. Each part has its own function and will affect the way a ship flies (or doesn't). So strap yourself in, and get ready to try some Rocket Science!"

In my words, Kerbal is the incredible combination of pleasure of building a spacecraft from Lego bricks ( Kerbal parts in this case) and the thrill of the WHOOSH! that went along with running with you spacecraft after you completed it out of bricks. As a child of the 70's and 80's I cut my teeth on Star Wars, Star Trek, Lego Bricks and NASA. KSP truly hits the mark as a game/simulation that let's you enjoy the best of those things in an incredibly fun universe of physics, rocket parts and.. gravity.

As the game reaches 1.0 and general release, I wanted to pay tribute to the first three Kerbals you are introduced to in the game. Jeb is bravest pilot amongst all the Kerbals and over the years many of us fans have grown quite attached to the little guy. We often send elaborate rescue mission to retrieve to poor guy from our early ventures into orbit or the Mun. Just as often, we attribute his skill and cunning to amazing feats of daring and survival when we have our hands on the keyboard and mouse.

So, here's to you Jeb! Long may you fly and return safely back home!

Ad Astra and Leg Godt!
