Default Will soon post kits for sale

Hello all, I have currently retired from my career as an glazing estimator . this was caused by my illness , I have MS. the MS causes me to have a very low level of energy and I have a hard time walking because I have lost 60% of the strength in my right leg .

I can no longer enjoy flying Model Rockets as just walking out to the launch pad is tough,
and I feel like a POS that everyone at the club is always retrieving my rockets for me.

I have a huge collection of both kits and built models.
I am going to list them here but understand that I cannot do this all at once .

I have kits by: Centuri, Estes, MPC, Custom, Semroc and others, most are sealed.
If you have a wish list let me know what you would like.
remember, listing these items is not half the work finding the boxes and shipping may cause me to have to use a packing and shipping service.

Note: if any of you live in Florida and might want to buy all or part of my collection please
write and we can discuss, I live in North Broward County, just south of Boca Raton.
Thank You, for your time and consideration.

Sorry to hear that you are leaving the hobby. My wife has MS and has all sorts of issues. However, her neurologist recommended a fitness center that specializes in adaptive exercises for MS and other patients. Cindy is now a certified yoga instructor specializing in gentle, chair, and pain management yoga, as well as Tai Chi. You might see if there are any similar facilities in your area. It isn't a cure, but it has helped her physically and mentally.
I am attending NARCON at Cape Canaveral.

Neil, I'm really sorry to hear about your health issues.

I know some people like to make a clean break of things, but I would hate to part with my own small collection. Even if you can't fly them, would you still get some enjoyment from building? I have to admit, I love the modeling aspect of rocketry as much as the flying. I think men need some kind of pass time, and now you're retired...

Thank You, to those who bought my kits, I was able to make 4 Deals that took most all of my Centuri and 1/4 of my Estes Kits. this is the way I need to do this, as going to the P.O. with
1-Zee , 2-Zee orders is to much for me with my situation with the MS. when I get some more ambition I will group some of the kits I have left as a monthly sale package deal sale.
this will be next month. Again Thank You.

So sad to hear how ill health can force a person to abandon their much loved and enjoyable hobbies and pastimes.

Although I'm in the UK and have had to leave the RC model flying scene due to spinal problems, I've now taken to rockets and am building like crazy at present (10 so far) but haven't as yet launched any of them.
A suitable launch site has so far eluded me but I keep looking, and as long as it's close to a parking spot that'll be great as walking even short distances has become a thing of the past for me, which as a 22 year Armed Forces veteran is a blow indeed, so I'll keep looking.

All my best wishes to you as I'm so sorry to hear of anyone who has to curtail their pleasurable activities due to health problems

Stay strong Neal
