Heres a couple pics of my fleet and workbench. On the bench I have a Semroc Saturn 1b and a Launchpad Exocet.

Nice! Now you just need to put a sign up that says Ken's Hobbies.

I really like the pegboard display idea.

Heck, near the beginning of our school year, one of my student threw away a full bottle of
Elmer's white glue in my bus' trash can. I asked him if he was sure he didn't want it, he said
"Yes, I'm sure," and I quickly took it. So, I basically got it for "free."

I thought that I was addicted to accumulating (not really collecting) rocket kits. Well,after seeing some other peoples stuff,I dont feel so bad any more,lol.

Ken,

Very nice idea!!! looks like we could walk right in and start buying OOP kits!

Somewhere out there in the world, there must be a whole-in-the-wall shop that still has 30+ year old kits with the original asking price still on them ... can dowsing help me find them? :P

Several years ago I came across an auction in PA, mostly items from a closed hobby shop. Most of the buyers were interested in plastic models, trains and the such.

I picked up about 20 1970's vintage kits and a whole bunch of motors.

I'm sure there are a few mom and pop hobby shops out there ready to close that you can find.

Don't laugh to hard, I've seen that! I've gone into shops that had stuff hanging for so long the labels were faded completely white.
