WANT

In October 2012, Fantastic Plastic is going to release a model of the von Braun Moon ship, as seen in the Collier's article and book from the 1950s. (Actually by Willy Ley, Fred Whipple and von Braun, with illustrations led by Chesley Bonestell) (But use Tam's link, please)

I seriously want this. Now, if they'd just do the Mars ships and re-release the ferry rocket, too!

There was a Disney show waaaay back then that used a modified ferry rocket. There were a series of the 1-hour shows...build a circular space station, and a circumlunar ship. I don't know if there was a Mars show or not. This was in the early sixties. Maybe late fifties.

Now you've gotten my curious. Must research.

Sweet.

That might just get me interested in plastic modeling again.

It is beautiful.

Ah crap! I really can't get back into plastic modeling now and I have a lot of unassembled stuff here already!
