I started my career with McDonnell Douglas in St. Louis in 1977. Sometime in the early 1980s (?) a co-worker gave me a beat up ~1/10 scale Mercury model. Today, they don't recall it at all. There is no plate or markings on it at all that identifies who made it.

Currently I am in the process of restoring it (it had bent parts, chipped paint, etc.). Any idea of who made it? Could be McDonnell in-house model shop but I have no clue. More photos here.
