Fred, it was a Florida trip. I may be going to Huntsville in a few weeks though.

Let us know your schedule Fred. We may be able to catch you coming through Atlanta. We missed you at Fox Brothers.

I had the opportunity to get some work done on the Little Joe II. We finished the body tube and set it up to ensure it was straight enough to display. Took it back down and worked the fins. They are attached but the bottoms need to be "blocked in."

The Little Joe II yard art project is moving along. The fins are capped off and complete, the engine bells are installed (yes they are Stainless Steel buckets). Also the Launch Pad (display stand) is nearly complete. I am hoping to be finished in the next few weeks.

Spent the day wrapping up the Little Joe II yard art. It now sits outside with other space related outdoor objects.

Today a real treat arrived, the "8" Ball created and framed by Michael Key, a real work of art. The back is made so that the ball can be moved by hand if desired.

Looks right at home in the Karst-onian Fred! It was a bit of a challenge to build this one, but I was happy with how it came out. I like how it is close by to a relative (1:24 Apollo launch stack).

Our latest addition of Calle art has arrived at the Karst-onian. Chris' "Last Man" and how appropriate with it being the dates of the 45th anniversary of Apollo 17 and the latest Presidential announcement of the Space Policy Directive 1 (SPD-1), mission to the moon.

The art is spectacular and impressive in the detail and representation of a wonderful achievement. Amazing is a word that comes to mind and it is being displayed with the works of his father Paul. We have the "First Step," the "Last Man," the first and last. Then the "Knights Amour" next to it, form Mercury to Apollo, the father to the son.

Chris, your dad would be proud.

Beautiful! Is that the original painting?

One of my favorite artists is Robert Longo and he's been doing these huge charcoal drawings and one is of the Mercury Seven. If you get a chance please check it out. He also has done the Earth, Moon and planets.
