Friendship 7

This model was made for the short film I created in fall 2020 - spring 2021 based on the life of NASA astronaut John Glenn. This is the capsule named 'Friendship 7' that held John Glenn as he made history for being the first person to orbit the Earth.

While modeling it, I looked at hundreds of reference images and tried to get it as close to the actual capsule as possible. Even down to the number of bolts.
