The wife and I got a little bored and it was such a nice day that we decided to hit the pawn shops and thrift stores to looks for any bargins. Low and behold at the local Goodwill store my wife spots this box with Estes written on it and called me over to see if it would be anything I would be interested in it. It was an old Estes Range box, opened but seemed to be intact and in good condition. I was unpriced so we went to front and asked what they wanted for it. The clerk said $3.99. Not believing my good fortune I quickly pulled out the cash and paid for it. This the box had a model called Stars and Stripes a 2 B6-4 engines, a launch pad (missing launch rod) and "Electron Beam" launch system. I decided to invite my grandson over and I "helped" him build it. Nice haul for $3.99.
