Hi all!

My last completed project.
Like the original, constructed of metal with plastic tip of a rocket from Estes Bull Pup 12D (EST 1972).

An original was sold by Profiles in History in the Hollywood Auction #30.

Thanks all! :)

Amish Trooper, I used a digital copy of the decals from the Estes Phoenix (TSE 1380).
I cleaned the file, cut out the interesting parts and printed on an adhesive transparent film.


For the "preview", nobody has an idea?

Great question. I am curious to know this too.

I knew it! It's a found item!! That's like one of my favorite props in the movie. Like what Amish and zorg said...what is it? lol

EDIT: Nevermind, found it. It's a Citizen CK451 LCD TV. Hope you don't mind me posting this info, Tee. If you want me to take it down, just tell me and I'll do it. :)
