I have created a new site to showcase my collection.

I had been wanting to do this for a long time. For those of you interested in the technical aspects, I did this as a blog using TypePad software with domain mapping to my custom URL. It took about 10 hours to photograph everything, write up the descriptions and create the site.

Thanks to everyone at the collectSPACE community for being so supportive and knowledgeable.

Florian - thanks to people like you (and others like Steve Hankow, Gerry Montague, Victoria Campbell, Kim Poor, Robert Pearlman, Donald Boggs, and Jerome Bascom-Pipp) for making these interesting items available.

That's a great site and fine collection, Dave. It's nice to see that you have some mission access badges and press passes as part of your artifacts collection. The signed Pictorial History of the Cape book is wonderful!

Great stuff... but just one note: your ASTP acrylic was not NASA issued, Ken H. produced those and may still have some available as they were recently done.

Thank you for all the positive feedback, guys. It makes the effort of putting the site together worth it.

Dan, I will make that change to the ASTP lucite. Thanks!

From your fellow Dave Scott's table companion, UACC 06 in San Antonio... Yes, you certainly have a superb site, and a beautiful collection. Thanks for sharing it with our Apollo enthusiast community.

I spent all day today creating a bunch of new posts to showcase the best 20 or so items I have collected in the past two years. (I had been lazy about updates).

ApolloArtifacts.com

Some flown items and some unflown. Most are hardware.

Many of my favorite pieces are included since I have slowed the quantity of my purchases to focus on quality.

I also added a few other things that interest me.
