Does anyone have the plans for that launch tower?
What was it made of?
Can it be easily cloned?
Looks cool.

Most were metal and were huge and contained in LARGE wooden transport boxes. One was left behind at MIT when I left in 1980. It may have been from Gordon Mandell who brought it from North Shore Section on Long Island or it may have come from someone else. Maybe one of the NAR S&T folks knows what happened to it? Ping them if interested.

You mean this tower? It's on display just south of Seattle, at the museum of flight at Boeing field. It's part of the Stine collection on display that was donated last year. If anyone gets to the Seattle area it's well worth a visit.

The tower looks to be made from sheet metal sections that were punched out and riveted together. It does not look like it would be difficult just tedious.
