|6328 Mobile Launch
Copyright 1967 --first year available 1968
offered through "Sears" as an individual accessory for the Astro Trac Missile
Convoy Set #6327, also a "Sears"
Each "white" plastic launch pad is nearly 10
inches long, the base is about 4 inches wide, which just covers the treds that it
supposedly would roll along. Of course these were molded on and did not really roll or
turn. Instead there is two sets of one-piece wheel sets also made of "white"
plastic, that the unit could roll on being towed by an Astro Trac.
The base towards the front of the pad has two
extensions to support the wider reaching legs of the satellite launcher. Making the
overall width of the base 5 3/8". The launch pad also has two other positions molded
in to accommodate the Space Probe Launcher and the Rocket Launcher.
Hole punched blister card which features three photos, each depicting a launch pad with
one of three launchers.
