From left: Beulah, Big Bertha, and a clone of the Canaroc Green Hornet,
seriously in need of sanding and a second primer coat. In front of the
rockets are some of the parts to a Centuri Micro-Probe clone.
The Big Bertha is an original kit from the late 1970's. I even used the balsa "die-crushed" fins, which were in surprisingly good shape after 40 years. She will probably receive the standard yellow and black decor of that decade.
