Not exactly starting off cheap, but then again if you really want the vintage stuff, you sometimes gotta pay the price.

Nice find, I see a couple of the Moon Go/Restone Maverick Nose Cones, and they have the Louvers, unlike the later ones I got without Louvers.

This seller has a handful of MPC Miniroc kits that, I think, they have had listed for a long, long time. I looked through these last night, though I already have these covered. But, the seller sent me 25% off offers on several of these kits and parts packs earlier today. The parts pack and the boost glider kit is available in multiple quantities. At 25% off, it makes these kits pretty affordable for those who may want to pick up one or three. I think if others made offers to the seller in that ballpark, you?d probably do well.

I think the reason these Minirocs have been listed so long is that MPC is not part of the description. If one were to search on just Minirocs one would get a hit, but otherwise no.

Not my listing nor do I know the seller. The link above is just for the models and kits stuff the seller has. Looks like they have thousands of other, non-related items.

Hmmm. Link still works for me.

Ok, here is another, just to one of the MiniRocs. Try it and then use it to see the other kits the seller has.
