No, his comment was uncalled for. All the OP had to do was look at his feedback. Someone at 100% with 1652 transactions is not an ebay ripoff artist. It didn't even take a mouse click to see.

AC Supply Catalog

AC Supply's new catalog cover is nice. It features a full page photo of Apollo 8 lifting off on the front and the two Estes Saturn V kits on the back. It's always nice to see rockets in the mailbox!...

That is an immaculately built and finished model from one of our own YORF members. It's not a kit in a box. Look at his feedback. Look at the photos.

Not a bad idea on that long skinny center section or the two outboard "engines". I imagine those parts have been kinked or crushed on many of the original models.

The old roman candle/mortar round. The propellant slug chunked itself out the top taking with it everything in its path. The reaction hammered the motor mount. Cool to watch...if it's somebody...

Restore it. If done correctly, the damage will be a blessing in disguise. As can be seen in the images, there is fairly severe internal corrosion. Since a restoration should include disassembly,...

It's cool to see how the K-36 goes together compared to the 2001 version and the Centuri KS-12 (5142). Pics are better than looking at old plans.

I'm with Musk. He'll eat his hat (with mustard) if Vulcan flies a national security spacecraft before 2023. Their idea of ejecting the engines for recovery is cool, but I wonder how much trouble...

They do look wicked and they performed quite well considering they were designed for both AF/Navy and had to do air superiority and tactical bombing, sometimes on the same missions.

Dynetics, PW Rocketdyne, and NASA actually worked it out and test fired an F1 gas generator eleven times in 2013.

Anyone notice that the locomotive has whitewall "tires"? :D

Also, the flatbed under the capsule has yellow walls. Dunlop I guess. :chuckle:
