A nice looking finish on the model. I have one of his 2.6" diameter capsules waiting to build.

This site has a pretty good reference for the use of the Mercury Spacecraft in pretty much very guise. Capsule 14 which flew on LJ-5B appears to use the band around the base of the antennae fairing. I think it was common on any production capsule as opposed to boilerplate.
