Thatís a great website. Thanks for the link. Feeling a little nostalgic, I thought Iíd photograph whatís left of my rocket collection.

Standing up are:
  • Miscellaneous tubes and the top of a Scrambler
  • A tall improvised rocket
  • A plastic Saturn 1B (I think this was a Cox kit)
  • A Bomarc (glide recovery rocket)

On the table is:
  • A Mosquito
  • A Mini-Bertha
  • An Honest John
  • Another Scrambler
  • A Mercury Redstone

They look fairly complete, but I must have scavenged parts from some of them. Anyone remember the Estes Design of the Month Contest? Most of these rockets were purchased with the $50 gift certificate. There were other rockets too, but I must have misplaced them. $50 could buy a lot of rockets in the '70s.
