1/144 Mars Gravity Probe 1 - Fantastic Plastic

1/144 Mars Gravity Probe 1 - Fantastic Plastic

The Mars Gravity Probe 1 (MGP-1) was the ill-fated manned interplanetary spacecraft that brought American astronauts Cmdr. Christopher "Kit" Draper (Paul Mantee) and Col. Dan McReady (Adam West) to the Red Planet in the 1964 sci-fi classic "Robinson Crusoe on Mars."

MGP-1 was an important step in cinematic spacecraft design as it was one of the first to incorporate design elements from actual NASA spacecraft then under development. These included four-nozzle Reaction Control System (RCS) thrusters, external fuel tanks and landing craft clear based on Project Gemini capsules.
