I like the staged kits.

Also the Skylab.
Skylab would be great. While I like the staged kits too, Stiletto, Black Widow, T-Bird are not difficult to clone (I've done all 3), Semroc has all the parts, including laser-cut fins. Only tricky part is the white decal for the Stiletto, with the loss of Sandman decals. The T-Bird needs to be built with a 24mm booster, which works well with the ST-10 tubing, still room for the coupler.

I know I'd still like to see the Quasar (hint, hint, Semroc) released again. That one has been our logo for years.



Yes, I would also like to see the Quasar re-released in its original scale, but also as an upscale, maybe a kind of modification of the 2.6" diameter size Silver Comet kit.

And like several others I would like to see the Nike-Ajax & Black Brant II also

Either I’m looking in the wrong place, or the USS Andromeda is gone from ERockets’ website.

Canceled due to lack of interest - apparently no one wanted to pay $1k.

Oh well. It’s a good thing I have enough raw materials and decals to scratch build (3) of them.

I would say that there is a delay in the kit due to the decals. Just guessing. All of the other kit components are easy.

Theory #1 - They got tired of answering emails about when this kit will be available, e.g. Now? Now? How about now?

Theory #2 - Estes is planning a rerelease and put the kaybosh on it.

Theory #3 - They are torturing us.

Theory #4 - I got nothin'

Or Theory #5 - he's got a daughter's wedding coming up and is concentrating on that.

Having just gone through one, I know how they can require a lot of your time.
