Hey Chas,
Just wondering, 10% of the Jonathan Dunbar collection sales goes to charity to support TeamSteele, Inc.. Do you know where does the other 90% go?

Kind regards,
Jeff

Yes, a number of us have Matt bookmarked and have made several good purchases from him.

I worked with Jonathan a number of years ago on the 'Our' Project at Black Rock and then had conversations with him over the years here on YORF until he was banned from the forum. We had similar interests in some rocketry history themes, so it has been good to obtain a handful of his collection so far from Matt and a couple others in second-hand sales.

I hope in some way Jonathan can know his collection, in a number of different hands now, lives on.

I believe that there are bills to pay from Jonathon's estate and hospice care. I haven't had the opportunity to sit down with the group to discuss that. All I know is that they keep opening storage container and reliving model rocketry history. Stay tuned as it will be fun.

I recently picked up 3 vintage paks of A5-2S motors and an Astron Scrambler kit on ebay for really reasonable pricing.
The A5-2S motors were under $10 per pak.

I saw those A5-2S just the other day. I don't need any additional vintage motors but the price was right for them. Glad someone got them.
