  1. I've been to a number of conventions and never found one to be less than satisfactory, or less than very enjoyable for that matter. Every convention had its problems, some with problems that were rather severe. All but a very few handled those problems and their Leadership Teams deserve a "well done" for addressing those issues. Of all of the conventions I've attended I found that the Chattanooga crew, led by Mike Moore, was the most enjoyable convention I've attended as a participant. And looking at those conventions in which I volunteered to take a duty station, I found the Chattanooga crew, Mike Moore, Tim Simmons, and Ed Sunder, to be excellent leaders and coordinators. Congrats to Mike and his team for an excellent experience!
  2. To answer the question posed by the thread's title................. No.
  3. "Preference" is never an option.
  4. Well, that didn't take long, and I should have remembered this kit, since I owned one for many years. It's Monogram's TV Orbiter kit.
  5. Yep. That's it! Unfortunately the Regulus missile that would match the trailer isn't included among the debris in the box. Congrats to Pat and thanks to everyone for chiming in. That was fun! Now, I've got another missile/base combo mystery but this one has enough clues to appear to be rather simple to figure out. This is a Monogram base. The word "Monogram" is molded into the plastic on the interior of the base. I've never seen this kit before and have no clue what the rocket is.....but the weird thing is that there is a long red rod, the same length as the rocket body, itself, that I found inside the rocket body. There is a rocket "nozzle on one end of the rod, and a black "cap" on the other end that, when inserted into the hole in the nose cone of the rocket, fits perfectly. Note that the black tip of the red rod has a hole in it, as if there is another piece that slides inside the red rod. Anyway, this shouldn't be too tough to track down. I'll google "Monogram Rocket Model Kits" or something similar and just scan the images until I see a match. In the meantime, if anyone just happens to know what this kit is called that would speed the search.
  6. It's definitely not resin. I'm thinking that I've erred in thinking the Snark belongs on this trailer, even though the fit seems to be really good.
  7. Additional pics.... The kit is in my possession. I'm thinking that the transporter trailer may actually be from a different kit but the fit between the Snark and the trailer are perfect. There's a locating pin/hole combo on the underside of the Snark that matches precisely with a pin on the trailer.
  8. I've got a house full of grandkids for the next several hours but when time permits I'll shoot a few additional pics. The kit is in my possession. I acquired it when I handled an estate sale many years ago. I'm thinking that the transporter trailer may actually be from a different kit but the fit between the Snark and the trailer are perfect. There's a locating pin/hole combo on the underside of the Snark that matches precisely with a pin on the trailer.
  9. It is, indeed, a mystery. If needed, I can provide additional images.
  10. Thanks Ron. My initial "research" (a 4 minute shallow dive into Lake Google) indicated it was most likely Lindberg.
  11. Anyone know which manufacturer produced this Snark? Note that the "base" is actually a transport trailer and not the launch pad, itself. Any help is appreciated.
  12. Revell released the "Space Station" kit in the late 50's/early 60's. I bought the kit in the gift shop of the Seattle Space Needle in the summer of 1962 and finished it that same year. The kit survived several relocations, from Great Falls, Montana, to Taylor, Tx, then Austin, Tx, and then to several apartments/dwellings in San Antonio. By 2004 the model was in a very poor state, so I chose to restore it. Many parts had gone missing and they were replaced with scratchbuilt duplicates. I do not remember where I manufactured my own decals (after many hours on the computer) and away I went. Having completed the restoration in 2004, the Space Station has occupied a prominent location, in its own custom-built display case, and is NEVER moved without extreme caution and care.
  13. You can view the "Winner's List" slideshow by visiting alamosquadron.com. 55,000 square feet of vendors and contest tables.....714 entries. Thanks to the vendors and thanks to the contest entrants. Lots of great models, lots of vendor items changing hands and expanding someone's stash.....
