I think that Rosemont has some Austin Ball's with resin props, guns, wheels,
etc. for about $6-7. Definately more in line with a learning kit. I was
originally thinking along the lines of a $2-3 kit at a swap meet or sale
bin also. As I said I started with a $2.00 kit. Before you spend $20 on a
vac to learn on let me rummage through my collection. I may still have one
of those Austin-Ball's laying around.
