Default Nike Hercules Scale Data Collection

I've been collecting data on the Nike Hercules for a while, and finally got it organized into a shared Dropbox folder:

Nike Hercules Scale Data Collection

That's about 800MB of stuff, pretty well organized into folders. It's been scraped from the web over quite a period, and I'm afraid I don't know the sources for most of it. If anyone knows more about these items I'd like to know and will add that info. If there is anything that should be removed, also please let me know.

Any additions would be welcome.

Gary,

Wherever did you find all of that data ?

100,000 files. I'm glad to see 3,000 folders... I'd hate to think of all of those files plopped into one folder (that's probably the way I'd have them).

Very cool. Thanks for sharing!

Back in 2010, I took extensive photos of the round that is on display in a public park in St. Bonifacius, Minnesota. I see you have one photo of it. If you'd like more, let me know.

If you have any interest in the missile sites, back in 2010 and 2012, I took photos of what remains of the MS-70 IFC and launcher sites - including photos down in the underground missile pits.

Though I suppose that could be 3000 folders with one file each, and one folder with 97000 files...

Silly rabbit, asking me if I want pics of a Nike Hercules...

I'd love to see more of the St. Bonifacius NH. It's neet to see that the city is taking care of it, unlike so many others. It looks like I can't create a Dropbox folder that's open to all for uploads, but I can share one if you PM me your email. Then you can drop pics right in there.

Thanks

Has anyone made any decals or have them drawn up to fit the booster section of the new Boyce Nike Hercules? Sandman had a nice set with his.

I've temporarily made my photos of the St. Boni Herc available on my google drive:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1L...M51h-Bfi1VkZPjD

Feel free to grab any or all of them.

After I took these photos, I exchanged some emails with the president of the local historical society about the missile and base, but now I can't seem to find them...

I also have tons of photos that I took on two different visits to SF-88.

beautiful pictures mn. It's too bad that other communities didn't recognize the historical impact of these sites and just wanted to cover up the "scars" as much as possible.

I am hesitant to delve into vcp's files though. I have a feeling that once I do that, I won't be seen for a long, long while.
