Still need 21 more!


Heck, with the 5-minute Apogee tower, I might be able to do a pair for ya', but I'd suggest letting this thread run for a few more days and/or going public with it before any of us get a second helping.

Received the notice yesterday that SEMROC has sent me a package. Now I have to find this Master Modeler guy they were talking about. And move the in-work OSO, the Frick 'n'Frack, the Hustler, the Lil' Hustler...

Go Bucks!

Speaking of master modelers, I almost forwarded this to the DARS-General list then remembered it's an SVDT posting. But I think Richard Benevides would be a perfect candidate to build one of these. You agree?

Richard would be a great addition, but I thought that he had left the hobby.
My interetest in this project is because astronaut Don Eisle was from Columbus, OH and was honored with a dinner that I and several other CSAR members attended. One of our members presented him with an Estes Saturn 1B. I have a couple of B&W photos that I will have to scan and share. I have the banquet program somewhere in the archieves.

He came back, but I'm not sure to what extent. My biggest concern in his case is that he'd build it too nice

Another who comes to mind is James Gartrell - if Don Magness doesn't have him too busy on other projects

DARS is building ten of them. John Dyer, Jack and Suzie Sprague, James Gartrell, and Stuart Powley are starting this weekend in a massive build session at the Sprague's.

The capsules will be here on Tuesday and we will send them out Priority on Wednesday.

I have nowhere near the required modeling skills, but I wish you all the best on this project. Great idea, Carl, to tap the members of your highly talented "team."

Man....I went home for lunch and there was a box on the stoop. I'm going "No way.......I know Carl is fast but this cannot be.....". Sure enough, it was my ROTW book from NARTS
