This is the Skill Level 4 Estes Kit # 2001 1/100th scale Saturn V flying
model rocket kit (not to be confused with the recent re-issue, # 2157). This
is a huge model - over 43" high and nearly 4" in diameter. A challenging
model to build, but the end result is well worth the effort. Estes
recommends a D12-3, but I'd suggest going with an Aerotech E 15 -4 instead.
This is still sealed in the original factory shrink wrap and is mint -
there. There is some minor crush of the box from the shrink of the shrink
wrap. Buyer pays actual USPS priority mail shipping and USPS insurance.
Insurance mandatory. Payment by USPS money order only. No Pay Pal. Non US
bidders welcome, but please E mail me first if you are bidding from outdside
the US. If you are a non US bidder and do not E mail first, your non US bid
may be rejected. Good Luck! to clear before shipping). Good Luck and good
bidding.

Two probate lawyers were overheard while discussing a current case:
Its such a splendid estate. What a shame to squander it on the
beneficiaries.

As promised.

Fred,
You are amazing! Did you ever watch "Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom" as
a kid?  Marlin Perkins (IIRC), the host was a master of the segway, just
like you. He would introduce an insurance commercial that flowed right
from the show, such as " just as a mother lion protects her cubs, you
too can protect your family with Mutual of Omaha Life Insurance." ;-)

I don't remember where I read it, but it seems that they may be
bringing that show back.

Thanks Len, I knew it didn't look right but was too lazy at the time to look it up.

Well, that'd be just dandy...especially, if they bring back Marlin :)

I think me might have lost quite a lot of weight in the last 30 years --
considering that IIRC he's been dead for about 20 of them!
