    Those are the rare ones, with the long box to accommodate the 36" long launch rod!

    Wow! The box appears to be in great shape. Are the contents in equal condition ? How did you come by this nugget of history ?

    Beautiful ! A man of few words, eh :) . Ok, my guess is you have a TARDIS, traveled to Denver/1958, picked up a new kit direct from the MMI shop.

    I bought one of these right off the shelf in my local hobby shop, when I was in junior high school sometime in the 1958 to 1960 time frame. The nose cone was a soft flexible rubber. I promptly flew it and discarded the box. Such a kit is probably a treasure now and is better off not flown.
