that pad has my attention... even that motor, if used would be cool.

Agreed. I find myself wondering if that LIA-77 is complete or not. But that is a neat find, yes. I went through a period of gathering “classic” GSE and would love to have a real wood Centuri pad.

In looking again, I see more clearly. Yes, definitely interested.

Ok, so I'm not sure what I'm gona do with this stuff. I havent bought it yet.But I know the man that runs the shop and he knows Im interested. He'll be back open Friday. Im visiting my Mom far away and would need to ship this stuff home. Not supposed to ship motors to the best of my knowledge. Would not bring the launcher to the airport either with all the gun powder residue. IDK.

GET IT! USPS ground with insurance! Wrap it up thoroughly and box it. Estes ships motors under E without a hazmat fee.

I think I will . Maybe its meant to be mine My Dad passed 8yrs ago. This is the first launcher I had that my Dad bought me when I was 10 -12yrs old. Thing here is, this junk dealer and my Dad were good friends and the guy even had a corner in his shop called "Ralph's Corner" where my dad sold some things.The last time I was in the shop was 8yrs ago when I was out here for my Dads funeral 💔.

I think there was a roll of the ignition wire too in the box now that I think of it. Didn't dawn on me what it ( wire) was at first.

I think if you put it up for auction, you'll be surprised at the large volume of activity.

Yes, Estes does, but Estes has an exemption to do so. Go ahead, it'll probably get through, but if it doesn't, don't use that as a defense.

Picked it up today. Here's the goods. No controller. He said he has a rocket in a box in another storage place.. Thinks its the Saturn V. Wouldn't it be something if its a Centuri ..😲
Any idea what the winged fighter looking rocket name?
Also any info on the motors. The black (?) printed Centuri is an A5-2
