    My sister was given one after production wrapped as a gift. Its the one on the right. Probably one of the first things I ever molded.

    Recently, I got access to the original production mold or what was left of it. I managed to get one good out, cleaned it up and and remastered it.
    I made a couple just for fun.

    When I painted it, I went with finer lines. Otherwise its the exact same paint. Interestingly the original has darkened with age. Which makes one wonder when we are trying to Screen match or otherwise match colors on props that are very old.

    Food for thought!

    Thanks for taking a peek.

    2"......36".........72".

    Size does matter.

    Will you be finding and refurbing one of the full size gliders next?

    I would give my *right* one, which as everyone knows is a way bigger deal. Not for *this* SS, mind you. :p

    * pretty little things, Frank.

    36XXX the original "death" resin. The manufacturer of that had to move to Warren Springs, outside of San Diego county to keep making it, it was that toxic.

    Fantastic glider. I hate you.
