Default The Alway Saturn V returns!

BMS will be rereleasing Peter Alway’s 1/195 Saturn V in early July. According to the website, this will be a limited run of this most excellent kit, and Bill is taking pre-orders now. I am stoked! I have been wanting one of these for years.

Looks like the 50th moon landing anniversary stuff is beginning to get underway!

And I already know how you feel about pre-orders, GH - but I put my money down for one. If you can’t trust BMS, you can’t trust anyone.

Love this kit. Glad it's coming back for the anniversary builds.

Cue a rant about not pre-ordering anything in 3, 2, 1....

One of very few companies I would ever consider a pre-order. That, Semroc, and Roachwerks.

"Step 88: When nobody is around, set your model upright on the table and count down from 10. Make roaring noises and slowly lift the model."

Magnificent!

Thank you, GH. That is a very high compliment. When Carl, Bruce, and I had Semroc, we never would take pre-orders. If it wasn't ready to go out, we just couldn't take money. Maybe we should have though, sometimes we made too many and lost money. That's when Carl started the "what kit would you like to see" section. The kits with the highest interest would be worked on first. Worked out pretty well and got everyone involved.

I really miss the customer participation with Semroc that Carl utilized. Something that is no longer done.

I procrastinated until all of the last run of Estes Saturn Vs were gone so I'm not missing out on these - preorder is placed (though I'm sure Estes will crank out another batch). Just hope I can get it built in time for one of the anniversary launches!

I miss that aspect of Semroc the most.
