Here are a couple of my boys. dressed in UOTM and in respect of Major Tom. One vintage and incomplete (also seen better days) and one 40th.

Never really had much love for this uniform, but since seeing the videos of MT's mission, I have seen it in a new light.



Great pictures Jet

Same here eccy, this uniform has been sat in a box for about 15 or more years until this week when I dug it out.
But what a great piece of kit, I've enjoyed putting this together today .
All because of the interest in the Mercury 10 mission and action mans 50th great project by Rob .

Exactly, I am after a capsule to go with the uniform now, but the prices have shot through the roof (of course).

I'm just gutted I missed the kickstarter because that gold tag looks really good on yours.
