Several years after the Yahoo Groups Space Modelers list was formed and after many get-togethers at IPMS conventions, Kevin Kilkenny decided to create a commemorative pin for folks who like to build models of real space vehicles.
This pin debuted
at the IPMS/USA National Convention in Atlanta in July
2005. Kevin had 100 made and they sold out by the end
of that year. In 2006 I had 300 new ones made using
the cloisonne process. Compare to the original pin here. Glenn
Johnson at RealSpace
Models and I both sold them and they were gone
by May 2012.
Because of continued
interest, we had another 200 made in July 2013. The
price is a little higher because of the smaller quantity
and higher postage.
We are now
selling them for $6 each including postage. Please use
the main order page on this website to order. If you
also order some SIM books, the pin will be sent
separately in a padded envelope.
