Buyer's Guide
Posted by CaddMann05 on Monday, July 16, 2018 11:50 AM

I haven't seen the Buyer's Guide for scale modelers in quite a few years. I think it was called the Buyer's Guide.  Anyways, it listed almost all sources for the scale modeler from A to Z. It was to me like the Sears Christmas catolog from many years ago.  Anyone know anything about recent publishings of this book, hopefully one for 2017-2018, or 2018-2019?  I could look through that book for hours just watering at the mouth, like Homer Simpson looked at donuts.  Mmm donuts!

I'm in search of more information on a model of the P1a Pershing Missile with the XM790 Erector Launcher, XM757 Prime Mover, and the missile itself, assembled on a wooden base with a metal label.  I believe it came assembled, as the inside of the (velveeta cheese style) box is stamped as follows (not the decorated box that the unassembled kit came in):

PPP-F-320, C LASS (DOM) GRADE (350)


Included in the box was a typed letter from Martin Marietta Aerospace, with the address

Orlando Division

Post office box 5837

Orlando, Fl 32805

It contained "Operating instructions 1/32nd scale Pershing Model Martin Marietta Aerospace Corporation".

I've had no luck researching it online.  I'm completely new to this site, or I'd upload photos.  I'd be more than willing to email them to anyone willing to help me find more information. is my email
