Project Mercury was the first human spaceflight of the US. Project Mercury ran from 1958 to 1963.
Project Mercury has a big part in United States space history, and I wanted to tribute that with a Lego model.
The whole model includes 277 parts, making it what would be an affordable set to buy.
I used the slanted wing pieces to make the dome-like shape of the bottom, and a circle-dom-ish piece to cap it on the bottom. I added small details to make it look mega-realistic, so it could look the best.
I think this model would be an amazing Lego set to tribute the first American spaceflight, it would be relatively affordable, and an amazing display piece.
