#11 In 1974 it cost $16.95...

and that was a lot of money in those days. Of course for a lad who's income was limited to five cents for every (full) garbage can he emptied in a week, 339 trips to the dust bins was unimaginable. Yes the mighty Saturn V would be a dream to own for a long time.

But now, one sits in my bedroom where I can gaze upon it when wakening and read through the directions a couple of times (even for a skill level 4, this ain't no mosquito or WAC Corporal), the mighty Saturn V kit sits awaiting its turn in the build queue.

It was a lot of money in those days. In 74 I worked at J.C. Penny's for $1.65 an hour. The pay wasn't much but I got some great dresses, tops and skirts at a good discount. Leggs were cheap back then too. ;)

I may have to put you guys in the corner! :oops:

Actually, I did some modeling for a local clothing store's Teen Board the last year of high school (not Pennys) that included Leggs products. I still wear Leggs in a pinch but prefer Hanes. ;)

I guess I'll have to keep a pair or two handy in case for the next time you dock ;)

Verna,
Since you are the Saturn Goddess ( may I be so bold as to refer to you that way?), I thought I'd ask you if you have any ideas on how to solve my Saturn V problem.

I started a Saturn V maybe 25 years ago. Then things got crazy, and it sat in a box partially built. When I started in on it again, I discovered that the paper shrouds for the upper transition was missing! :o

It probably fell to my shop floor, and got swept up without me realizing it. It's been sitting for 20 years, and I'd really like to finish it. I thought about using Plastruct or Evergreen strips, but that my be too detailed compared to the rest of it. I figured you might have some ideas.

Part of me is tempted to just turn it into a Der Red Saturn Max with skull and crossbones, and some Mitt Grabben and Nicht Stomping decals ... :)
