Check this out.

I found this listing in a Profiles auction catalog. Read the description. Look at the painting.



Now look at the model I'm building.



Apollo 13 dream sequence? No.

Andy Griffith cheesy TV show. Yes.

LOL

I remember that movie - didn't they run a salvage company and fly to the moon to pick up all the apollo crap that got left behind. IIRC the command module was from a cement mixer truck.

Silly rabbit - don't you remember that scene in Apollo 13 where Tom Hanks dreams about sending Andy Griffith to the moon in a cement mixer? :D

Quest?

That was just the fuel they used.

You may be mistaking that with the Robinsons always drilling for duetronium(sp?).

Well my memory may be clouded but I thought they had a hard time making/getting the fuel but heck wehn I was a kid I thought it was cool. Yeah Quest is probably inaccurate.

Could that have been an in-joke on Ron Howard's part? He is Andy's "son" after all...

Now that I would believe.

Now that would be cool.

But that painting has been around way longer than Apollo 13. I remember it being in magazines and article about Salvage back when it was made.
