Not my listing nor do I know the seller.

I have two of those kits. Gave a third away to a friend for Christmas a few years ago. I have built one of the two. It has been painted white. The four black tubes are painted. I just need to paint the black details on the rest of it. I have painted the CM silver, but undecided if I will do any further detailing.

I think the record eBay price for this kit was over $400! One of my kits was acquired for $39 at a local Ace Hardware maybe 20 years ago.

The market is never the same, Especially after it sells ( The Collector got it ! ). They come n go. It’s possible it was mine, as I sold a Centuri one in the 1960s box for $400 once at auction. I have one now but in the 70s white box. The black paint isn’t the most fun thing to do. I left the original paper Apollo wrap on my 1/70 Estes one as I wanted it to be as "Estes original " as possible. I’m not Always a super scale buff…. A lil of both, sometimes

Pretty good deal on a 12 pack of Estes Alphas, if someone has a need for kits for a group project. Buy It Now at $65 with free shipping.

No bids as of yet on this Centuri Lectra-Line 2 launch controller and LIA-77 wooden tripod launcher. Starting price is just $15. The launcher is missing the deflector and both look a little dusty and used, but certainly could be cleaned up. The Lectra-Line 2 in any condition does not come up too very often.

Little less than four hours left in listing.

Darn. I would have jumped on that one if I'd seen this before just now. I have been collecting old GSE to use occasionally and would have loved to add that LectraLine to the collection. I have one of those replica LIA-77s that were being sold by someone here on YORF....I don't know what I would have done what that partial one in that auction. Oh well....

Yeah, sorry you missed it if you wanted it. Maybe someone else here got it. It went pretty cheap I think...like $18 for the set. They were kinda used and dusty but were probably serviceable.
