Tell me what NAR donation level you're interested in and I'll accelerate that print preview for you. This is mitigation for the vendor web design which is obviously lacking in that regard. The shortfall will be fixed as soon as possible.

Keep in mind that the NAR Donation and the print purchase are two different transactions.
The print portion is a simple retail transaction

Default These Additional Prints Available for Purchase after a $100 Atlas Donation

Additional Print Purchase Options at the Atlas Donation Level of $100.00



G. Harry Stine (R) at the world model rocket championships in Dubnica, Czechoslovakia in 1966, with Jim Kukowski lurking at his four o'clock position.



The mid-century/space age feel of this image grabs the attention of even non-rocket people who see it for the first time. The exhibit developers at The Museum of Flight knew the image would be part of the exhibit as soon as they found it. Freudian influences aside it nicely captures the timeless enthusiasm that rockets and space exploration evoke in people of all ages. It's made even more significant by the career of the gentleman on the right who many will recognize as Jay Apt.



Another image selected by the vendor for its composition and artistic merits. An MMI kit sitting in the grass; maybe there's an art major out there who can help me out.

This image was taken from an original Model Missiles hobby shop poster not widely available to the public. Likely one of the first examples that existed in the sixty year history of the hobby. Again the artistic merits of this image saw it selected to be part of the G. Harry Stine exhibit at The Museum of Flight.

This image was taken from an Estes hobby shop poster and is based on the cover of the 1971 Estes catalog cover. The iconic Interceptor kit is shown against the backdrop of a solar eclipse seen from Apollo 12 on its way back from the moon 48 years ago this month. This was the first solar eclipse witnessed by humans that had the earth as the intervening celestial body.

This exceptionally rare mid 1960's Centuri poster is seldom seen. The image was taken from Lee Piester's personal copy.



If you walked into a hobby shop in 1971 you might have seen this poster introducing the Mini Brute line of mini engine powered rockets!



A canvas print of this beauty would look great in your rocket room; in the 1969 Estes catalog they sold for 75 cents. The guy in the picture is now likely eligible for Social Security!

Late Summer 1971 (they introduced them at NARAM 13).

Roy, just bein' picky.

Ok, I can be more picky and say that they flew some at the Pittsburgh convention and other east coast model rocket events, but I think the first time they were available to the general public was at NARAM 13.
