I signed up for the Tower Hobbies mailing list yesterday, and today I got an email from them good for $10 off any $50 or more order from their www.plastic-models.com website. The ad code is '011C7' and (if it's anything like their past promos) it ought to work for anybody.

So, if you've been holding out for a deal on that MRC Mercury capsule, here's your chance...

I just recently did the redstone liberty bell 7, leaning toward the atlas. I would have to make the removable fins, I'm not a big fan of those, whether their lexan or not...but I could live with it, thinking about using the foils available for the booster also!!

I think using the capsule interchangeable between boosters would be a great way to go. Overtime, Build all 3, I 'm gonna go with the Atlas first.

Last night I printed out that 50% coupon to pick up a Mercury Capsule. When I walked to the back of the store to model/rocket area, my mouth dropped when all the Rockets and motors were gone!!! After the shock wore off I asked a clerk and they had moved the Rockets down about 3-4 rows away from the modeling items. I am dumbfounded why they would put the rockets in a place in the middle of the jewelery making supplies and away from the models, glue, trains, etc. Well I found the Mercury Capsule and picked it up for $34 and change after taxes.
