Jim Crompton’s Mars One


This is the Mars One resin model kit from Lunar Models. It took a couple of days of work off and on to get the hull near perfect. Color is Testors Silver. I then waxed the paint over and over with the ‘Final Detail’ spray wax/cleaner.

The ship got around. The rocket appeared in the movie titled “Flight To Mars.” It was also featured in the movie “It, The Terror From Beyond Space,” as well as an episode of the “Outer Limits.” It could have appeared in other films as well.

  1. I always liked the look of this ship. Wasn’t it originally built for ROCKETSHIP X-M, only to be turned down in favor of the ship design we see in the final film?
