I’m on a mission from “Bob”

For 4 days and nights in a row with Gary Hughes, Tom Piedmont, and myself. We have been on a mission for Bob Burns who always wanted a Disney TWA Moonliner model since like me he stood at the foot of it.

Out of all the things he owns from the original “Time Machine” to the ship from the original “Day the Earth Stood Still” this ship has a place in his heart like no other and for me too.

Why? Because it was a part of the real “Disneyland”. A real Disneyland that had the Nautilus from “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea”. One that was all Walt Disney.

We stood at the foot of that huge rocket and dreamed. Dreamed of a future with real rockets and ship ships that would take us to the stars.

So Scott Alexander sent me a kit and Gary Hughes drove done from Sacramento and Tom from Santa Monica and we built this beautiful model in four days.

Today we are taking this model to Bob’s museum and presenting it to Bob.

We have documented the whole project on video and it ends with the delivery to his home and museum. Stay tuned!
