Just got the email that the 2 I ordered, along with a few others to make the free shipping threshold, have just been shipped already! Wow! Can't wait, either!

Very cool Dr. Zooch Moonraker. Add a Zorin Industries 'sub-sponsor' decal to add a supporting "Special Guest Villain".

I can't see what the power for this model is on the face-card.
I'm assuming it would have to be at least 24mm with a D12 for a model this large (2.6") if not an E12 as the altitude listed is 500'.
I know the 1284 Space Shuttle was only ST-20 based and got nowhere near that high on a C5-3.
That orbiter appears large enough to house micro 3-channel radio gear.

Yep, Zorin was cool, probably designed the computers for Drax... Course Tanya Roberts was hotter...
