I would have to dig them out. They're all a clear plastic acetate. I've got them in a plastic bag to prevent any scratching in storage. I've estimated this will cost about $6500 when finished. I had built another one and sold it in primer to a retired fellow at the local flying field for $8500 20 or so years ago.

I get the 'getting old' part all too well. When I go fly rockets, I make sure someone younger chases them down. And they gladly do it.
