You can't get a decent 1971for $10.


I was expecting to pay at least $25, but I did not increase my initial bid. I did an initial bid, then got distracted with family stuff, and never went back to increase. Oh well, just need to keep looking.

For me these were my teen years and what I think of as the very zenith of the golden age of rocketry. Nostalgic memories are reduced to a mere $21.87 spent on eBay. Does $40 seem like too much?

Eww! That one looks like it's been damp at one time.

Yes, saw this one too. I think I'll have to pass. They seem to showing up more, I just have bad timing. I don't mind paying the $$ for a decent one.

The 1977 catalog was probably my first, but the 1978 catalog with the introduction of Star Wars models was big.
