There were many displays showing my submarine models in Kennesaw, this one was one of my favorites.
These rockets represent the dreams of my childhood, with fins and streamlined body’s; the spaceship designs of the 1950's are the ones that captured my imagination. Even when the real ones were taking off on TV every day, I still loved these best. Call me a Romantic...
The Earth-to-Moon Space Train had its own display in the corner with a moon that lit up.
This is the workspace that the museum staff set up for me. I was able to make two models right on site at the show and Give demonstrations on cardboard model making. I made models of the French Submarine Gymnote (the hull I am holding in the picture) and the Southern Locomotive. I gave the Gymnote to the Museum to raffle off for charity. I had a lot of fun in this workspace, talking to people and showing them the exhibit. Sometimes the guests needed explanations of what possessed me to make a particular model.
The Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History in Kennesaw, Georgia is a member of the Smithsonian Affiliations Program. The museum offers a wide range of exhibits, including a glimpse into the daily lives of soldiers during the Civil War; a reproduction of a turn-of-the-century locomotive factory; and an exciting depiction of the Civil War's Great Locomotive Chase.
