SCI FI Spare parts- from which kit(s)?

Recommended Posts

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.

Dick,

I didn't know but asked on the Star Ship Modeler forum.

The fins and bodies are definitely Lindberg Space shuttle/cargo rocket bits.  The ogive nose on the silver rocket is from the Satellite rocket.  I'm drawing a blank on the silver backpack looking thing on the table.

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.
