Golden Scout, reborn

On Ye Olde Rocket Forum, I was lamenting the loss of my Golden Scout at NARAM-50. In jest, I mentioned I might actually build the Red Scout that Semroc handed out to registered Golden Scout fliers. This kit is packaged in a tube just like the original, includes a hand-rolled body tube, and was packed with love by Gleda Estes (well, maybe Vern helped). In other words, it's a collectors item and shouldn't be built.

Well, Carl from Semroc read my post and offered a replacement Golden Scout. Within a few minutes I had shipping confirmation. Carl and Co. are class acts. 'Nuff said!
