We now have several free download models around our site. You can find them hidden about.  Mercury Redstone 8 can be downloaded here. 

The Mercury Redstone was a converted military rocket originally designed to deliver a nuclear payload. Although not powerful enough to boost a spacecraft into orbit it was powerful enough to get America's first astronauts into space and allow the U.S. to gain experience in space travel. The design of the rocket was largely the accomplishment of a team of German scientist captured at the end of World War II and headed up by rocket genius Werner Von Braun. The first suborbital "hops" into space made in the Redstone lasted about fifteen minutes for the astronauts. 

     This model of MR8 is a 1/96th scale replica of the craft flow by Astronaut Virgil I. (Gus) Grissom. After splashdown a malfunction caused the explosive hatch to blow open and allowed for water to enter the capsule. Fortunately Gus Grissom survived and went on to command the first Gemini mission. The capsule sank to the ocean floor where it stayed for more than 30 years. The recovered Liberty Bell 7 capsule is now on an international tour.
