    God dag! where in the world would you find one?
    looks like it's being reissued? Here is the Revell 1/40 Aerobee-Hi kit number RMXH1814.

    I have a local hobby shop that might be able to order them in bulk, I have an email to them.

    The cylinder which frames the "truck rim" reminds me of a scotch tape cylinder, but the three tabs in the pic aren't on modern cores.

    I think your right. I kind of remember the old ones having the tabs. Probably used to roll up the tape. Good job

    Found an Aerobee but it was the last one the store had. I ordered it and will post scans as soon as it come in.

    Thanks guys.


    Edit on that tape reel, i have 2 different ones here. One from the wide tape and one from the narrow tape. The narrow tape reels have deeper side channels. The wide tapes have what looks like 2 thinner tape reels glued together and have a shallow channel like on the T16. Fraking great guys. We'll have this thing ID'd in no time. Looks like this one will be done before the X. I will go back and number these maps. I forgot at first but will do it so we can have a numbered list of parts and maps.

    The parts maps are numbered and done. There may be a few odds and ends still but this is the bulk of it. NEXT!!!

    Am I late?

    If that's the Aerobe (& it is), then (size-wise) the tank copula (#36) is from the 1/48th / Panzer V.

    Hey Gents, i'm a bit red-faced on this but the Aerobee is a bad match. Serves me right for trying to do this with all my kits long in storage. The correct match for the cylinder along the upper edge of the c0ckpit is the Revell 1/48 Apollo Lunar Spacecraft kit. Here is a pic confirming the details.

    Very sorry for the bad info

    I will start double-checking my sh1t before posting

    I finally nabbed an Apollo Lunar Spacecraft (and I think I have everything else now too). When it arrives, I will draft up the wings and body panels, and will have them laser cut from styrene.

    Builders Group, any one? Happy to have my buddy cut more for anyone building this.

    Im glad you finally got some good decals Jason!
    I dont remember when they changed them to the newer set, but from examining the ones on the t-16, you can see the brush strokes to change the look.
    There is one more decal to find and its under the window and it says "exit release" it may be from the harrier or one of the other kits used like the gemini/mercury kit.

    Jerry - if we don't find that decal, I can just make it from scratch

    Also - been checking wheel hubs for that rear detail piece. C-600 AMT City Delivery seems close, but that ribbed inner detail reminds me of the Movin On, maybe? One of the Colonial Mover's donors... Anyway, the rim/bolt pattern looks like a Ford part.

    Try hanging them printed side facing out on a window that gets full sunlight for a couple of days and the yellowing should go away.

    What i do know about the rim, is that it is from the tractor, or the trailer, but it is a custom job and on the real thing it is made of aluminum, it is a split rim (two parts). Also, it is from the late sixties to early seventies, as manufactuers are able to make one piece rims now.
    So, any kits that had custom rims from the two above decades should help in narrowing down the closest kit.
    Im pretty sure its from an AMT kit.
