Which Mercury Redstone did you build the newer 1921 with the plastic capsule, or the old school K-41 where you build the tower with small dowels?

Enjoy!

The one with the plastic capsule.
This was to replace the one that got too old and dry in my attic for years.
Bought the new kit which had balsa fins and cardboard motor tube.
I like my older one with the plastic fins and the plastic motor tube which the fins attached through the body.
I salvaged the fins, motor tube and capsule off the old model and used them in my new one.
I think it is stronger.
