Wouldn't mind one myself, but I expect just to scratch-clone.

Question

There’s two versions of the Mini Max, one has a balsa cone and the other has a plastic cone. What years did each come out?

Probably out of stock, but you could try them.

The entry says out of stock.

To the OP - my spreadsheet says I have one. I don’t know whether it’s balsa or plastic nosed, The box it’s supposed to be in is at the bottom of one of the stacks of boxes…how badly do you want it ?

Nah, I tried everyone last year. Found one, but they wanted $35 for it. I really miss Gordon at times likes this.

You need a few more Maxes, Bill. How many do you have now, about X882 of them?

Right? I don't get why they discontinue good stuff like this all the time.
