Default Been chasing these for years. Finally won one.

Unlike most of what I buy, this one will just be for the shelf above my desk. Right next to the still-in-package Beta.

Bill,

I was looking at the condor too, I'd like to rebuild my mini-brute fleet from the 70s. I had a bunch of them, and lost most of them. The only original I have left is a mini-bomarc (never launched her as a kid, it was just too cool looking). So far all I've added is a beta I picked up last fall, I'm too cheap to pay going prices for most of these.

-Paul

Bill,
I trust it was the Condor you got ?
If so, that's a rare one and a great find.
So is the Pegasus now.
The Alien Invader is not really rare...i see them up for sale OFTEN.
The Beta is not rare (for a 20yr old OOP kit unless an original non-pink header S-motor version, or even the T-motor version with the BALSA nose cone) really either....I find those often also & built an original about a month ago.
I think the same guy had a Mini-Bomarc and a Wolverine kit up there also.

Yeah, the Condor. I forgot the pic was of three birds. (They're welcome to send them all to me though.)
