Not sure if there a LIA - 88. I can't remember if there was a launch pad between the 77 and 100. I had the LIA - 77 back in the days, lasted a good while until one of the wooden leg snapped in two.

The LIA-88 only appears in the 65-68 catalogs, just a basic wood assembly with an asbestos pad for heat deflection. It came with an option for either the 1/8 or 3/16 rod. I 'm gonna try to scale it from the rocket (Explorer).

Shhhhh. Don't say asbestos. The class action lawyers will crawl out of the woodwork.

LOL..that's the truth, I've been retired a few years and daytime TV (when I can stand to watch) is a continuous loop of "get your settlement" commercials.
