Itís interesting the F50-4 is crossed out and the F62-4 darkstar is in its place. I would think the F50 would be fine.

Never seen one before, but that is a "late" MSH face card. The earlier (1995-1997) ones had a different style. I knew that the new, improved V-2 kit came out around 2002. I wonder if the Mercury Redstone came out around that time too, along with ??? other kits?

I recall them also advertising a 4" Little Joe I. I'd have to do more digging in my basement to see if I have that advert. But I do have one of their catalogs and I scanned in the page with their kits listed at that time.

Notice at the bottom of the page, the reference to the 4" Mercury Redstone coming soon as well as a 4" Saturn V in the works. As far as I know, they never did release a Saturn V kit.

Not a great picture, but this is the prototype.
