      I have Skylab partially researched. There’s just so much it will be a big set. After I get some things taken care of I may try crowdfunding it.

    Oh man if -I- idn’t get 10/10 I would have been exposed as a phoney. Mark, I’m still witing for that phone call. Dave, Mark is right there is ALOT of material. Based on what I have each mission would require 5-6 dual layer DVDs.
