You must have caught it while they had it open for testing or something. Just tried going there (9pm CST) and it says restricted and asks for user name and password

It works for me, the Home page has a young rocketeer holding the 1/200 scale Saturn V with clear fins !!!

The new website seems not to have "Coming Soon" or "Whats New" sections anymore, though you can sort the Rockets for sale listing by "Latest"

Thanks!!
I see it now, if you just click on "Shop" it shows up on the page, but it is not a selection in the drop down for "Shop".


I see the Black Brant II is back!, but I assume the diameter of 2.6" is an error.

I posted to the new PDF catalog thread that I love pages 4 and 5, and we have a whole bunch of staged kits now. Some stuff in the catalog isn't on the website yet. The staged Bertha surprised me. Overall, it's a nice, complete catalog. The website isn't bad either.

If you are still getting the login screen (like I am) it may be caused by your ISP and their DNS server. This morning I was still getting the login screen. And I was getting it on all of my devices (which ruled out any cookie or cache issue, as some of the devices had never been to the Estes site). I changed my DNS setting from the ISP provided to the Google public DNS (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4). Now I can finally see the site. If you can't see the site, you might want to try this.

Having lots of staged rockets makes sense for a company that makes its money from black powder motors I guess. And, yes lots of good new things in the catalog and they are presented well on the new website. These are the good old days!

It does, but they've shied away from it over the last couple of decades partly due to the added complexity of staging for neophytes and the potential failure rate.
