Hi and Welcome-
That is very interesting. That, of course is one of the VERY RARE models from Spitz. We would love to see any pictures of the installation that existed at the time. Do you have any showing yourself behind the console? Naturally, we are interested in the machine too, but I've always wondered if the Model "B" console was similiar to the STP's?
Please feel free to scan in and upload anything that you are willing to share with us.
As you can tell we are all "nuts" about these traditional machines.
Also, ANY memories you have of working there would be wonderful to hear.
Did you present live or "canned" shows?
Do you have ANY of the brochures from those days? What about any old scripts? Any newspaper accounts? Any military pictures of the installation? It would be a real treat to see such things!
If you have anything that you would care to donate to the Planetarium Museum, please contact Owen directly. I assume you are aware of both his website for the Museum and his "Planetarium Picture Scrap-book" site?
His contact information is listed on these sites.
If you've not seen his websites, be prepared to be well impressed!
Again, thanks for this information. mm
