Yeah, I might be late on this one, but this was one of the best Scale topics I've seen over at Scaleroc.

***********
Eight Little Joe-II's were built.

Five were flown.

Two are displayed.

That left one unaccounted for.

The mystery is now solved.

Normally I hate it when people post a link rather than going ahead & posting the story text. But in this case, the web page makes the story. You’ll understand why once you see it. No, no sign-ins, complex html, or any of that junk.

But seriously, there were 8 Little Joe-II's made, and one of the two unflown 12-50 series was unaccounted for. Probably scrapped.
I bought it on eBay :D

I know... eBay did not exist back then.... neither did I for that matter.... :D:kill:

I sure hoped they sealed it up real good with duct tape before they submerged!
