The smallest spacecraft there is; an International Space Station space suit.

This model from Bandai is an excellent moulding, in several colours and includes articulation joints. It is such a tight fit that glue is probably unnecessary, but it does make dry fitting almost impossible.

The gold visor is retractable and all limbs are moveable, like the other Bandai science fiction figures.

An interchangeable hand allows demonstration of a hand tool.
