  1. Thanks Bryan. That corroborates research I've done, but that nose cone had me confused. I have found that the "silver backpack" is actually a "hatch" or "door" to an unknown space ship. Not going to try and build the original models as I don't have all the parts but I can see these scraps being incorporated into a kit bash.
  2. Any idea as to which kit(s) these parts might go to? Lindberg and Strombecker had a series of space ships that used parts similar to these. Note that the parts are molded in silver and white.
  3. Hope to have it finished by year's end. I'll post some pics when completed.
  4. A kit that is seldom seen, been on the stash shelf for a number of years. Thought I'd do something other than rigging biplanes for awhile. I'm well into assembly but an early choice must be made.....build it as is or try to improve the fit of various sub-assemblies such as the four engine nacelles and the nose sub-assembly. And let's not talk about the cockpit, does not live up to the detail molded on the vehicle body. Anyway, moving along now that the seams have been filled.....
  5. David, The website for 2020 is up and can be viewed at http://www.nats2020.com/.
  6. An update on my search for the Ceramic Fiber.... Success! The phone # is 802-885-3094 (no answering machine so just let it ring, if no reply then call back later) Ask for Precision Enterprise and away you go! I bought 4 packs of Wonder Wire (only comes in .006mil and that works for 72, 48, and 32 in my humble experience) $10 per pack and shipping was $4 (domestic) Place order Oct 11 and received the package about a week later Now I'm set for a few years!
  7. Yep. I found that listing as well but on a different site than FSM. The post where I got the phone # is 9 years old so........... we'll see if they are still in business. Will try a phone call again later today. Thanks!
  8. I'm trying to find a source for Wonder Wire, also known as ceramic fiber for rigging.
  9. Skip, the block apparently sold out on Tuesday. Glad to see that you got your reservation. Looking forward to seeing some of those ships you build next July.
  10. I acquired this kit in Dec, 1978 and its been sitting on my stash shelf until April/May of this year. The kit supplied metal rods to use as rigging and that worked out fairly well.
  11. 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!
  12. To answer the question posed by the thread's title................. No.
  13. "Preference" is never an option.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
