Quincy is a depressed dump again now. There'd be nothing if the college was not there.

According to the photo, those Alpha plastic parts have a red metallic finish. If so, they could just as easily have a chrome finish.

I think you older guys know where I'm going with this.


I don't have a clue.

I suppose I can replace the SkyDart. IIRC I tried using the Andromeda before and it comes out too small, but I'll see what I can do.

I didn't get what you were talking about until I clicked on the link. Dang it! It looks like eBay doesn't want to show a completed auction but instead shows a related active auction, thus the Thor Agena link. Attached is a screenshot of the intended link. $203 is $100 less than the Quasar that sold a couple of years ago, but that's still a lot of simoleons for a rocket.

Let's see if this link works: https://www.ebay.com/itm/-/27332312...p2047675.l10137

I noticed that. But wasn't sure if it was auto-censoring, or if maybe it was something else.
