Another shot for context. This is a BT-60 sized model built from an Alway plan from (I think) 1989 or so in American Spacemodelling (or whatever they were calling it back then).

Amazing that General Tire was involved in this.
General Tire barely exists any longer and is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Continental.

General Tire was into a whole lot of stuff back then. The company history is an interesting read.

If anyone wants this file, I will make it available. First I have to do the lettering on the fins.

Okay, just when you think you have answered every question…

The NSL 42 letters on the 2nd stage fins only show in one photo on one side ( the side that has the Aerobee Hi logo). It’s in white on the black fin and black on the white fin.

Question, should the marking be on all sides of all fins? I notice in looking through ROTW that the Air Force Aerobee Hi (on page 108) shows no marking on the white fin opposite the black fin (marked AF II). So before I put the decals on the other fins, I am wondering if anyone knows the answer.

Any help would be great. Thanks.
