Default Estes Mercury Redstone Spacecraft.

Looking for the Spacecraft (Hate to say CAPSULE) I have the rocket body complete, but the spacecraft is missing. Anybody have a spare they care to part with?

What scale are you looking for? Plastic or Balsa wood?

"Capsule" is better than "Living Specimen Pod".

Was it the balsa and paper BT-60 or the plastic ST-20 size?

Obviously, you'll have better luck finding the Estes capsule, but the Centuri Mercury capsule, which is the original mold, would work ok too. The Estes kit is a re-issue of the original Centuri kit from 1971. The original Centuri version is typically molded in black plastic whereas the Estes issue was typically red or white plastic.

Either would work ok for you. Occasionally, a capsule only kit leftover will show up on ebay.

Looks like Sunward has a few Estes Mercury Redstone kits for sale.

Looks like a viable solution to your capsule search to me. That way you'll have a back up rocket body and wraps if you ever need them.

Estes Mercury Redstone Kits available
