Gemini in Kerbal Space Program

I found an amazing Kerbal Space Program Mod that includes Gemini and Mercury. Perfect for recreating a couple of historic flights. I had to create something Agena-like myself in order to start practising orbital rendezvous and docking procedures as they went for real (for the purists: I know Agena looked different, but the solar panels were needed, and I was too lazy to build Thor so used a Titan to launch it. The first flight and docking were successful:

The real thing looked something like this:

After the successful first docking I went on to recreate the Gemini 6 and Gemini 7 encounter. Almost ran out of propellant on that one, but succeeded in the end. Very rewarding:
