Space Bug Questions and Answers

Post  GWILLIEFOX on Thu Mar 16, 2017 6:54 am

Here is a very unique paper Cox must have putout in 1952 about the time the Space Bug was introduced. Found this in a stack of literature I got at the Lebanon Swap Meet last weekend

Thanks Bill, pretty neat. I especially like the "free flight guys are on their own" comment.

I suppose that problem is what led to the Thermal Hopper.

Thanks for posting this, pretty cool!
Its interesting that it mentions the 'Hop-up Kit' which from what i've read/heard was produced in '53 only, but according to this the Hop-up kit was available earlier? Lol, I remember reading the instructions in the Hop-up kit that mentions the hi-comp head being "extremely hard on slow or clumsy fingers"

Sure it can be saved...do I need to do Something?

Bill, that's great stuff there. I wish I could've made the Lebanon meet but work took priority. I know a lot of the guys that went from the Philly crowd came back with some neat things. Ken
