I tried that before posting my complaint

based on this post I'm not the only one, and it might be an issue w/ my provider DNS. The links work on my work computer (ironically)...so I will give it another try when I get home tonight.

I even tried ipconfig /flushdns no joy

I had the same issue. I tried it on a number of computers in the house and all brought up the same "Login" screen. I then went in and switched my DNS from the one provided by my ISP to the Google public DNS (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4). As soon as I did that everything came up (and a bit faster too, I might add)

For the Boosted Bertha, think Id parallel stage the booster with a couple of side pods container short delay motors, and put streamers or tiny chutes in those pods.

Pages 50-51 show a Jayhawk. I was excited for a moment until I realized it is not part of the 2019 lineup.

I really like the new catalog. A couple of things I noticed, the diameter of the rereleased Black Brant II was 2.6" last night but was fixed and in now correct -1.33" (way to react Estes!). Secondly, I find the placement of the decals on the Interceptor a bit odd. On the co-pilot side, "Air Force" and "FC-803" is divided by the yellow stripe. On the pilot-side "Air" and "Force FC-803" is divided by the stripe. It's uneven. A nitpick but I'm a graphic designer. It's an occupational hazard. Bravo Estes!

It's that way on the original too. The difference is it's now "Air Force" and back then it was "U.S. Air Force".

You are correct, of course. My point is that before, the way the type set, it made the sides opposite but balanced. Now, not so much. Gonna toss that one anyway. Glad to have it back. I m itchy to see the next scale kit and we don't even have the 1/200 Saturn V yet.

It looks like they are making live corrections to the catalog. Go crazy on the error checks before they print it physically! This might be the most error checked Estes catalog ever.

Just Jerry

Maybe they will correct the missing larger Jayhawk and Saturn 1B.

They sell a Phantom not intended for flight. Maybe they could sell the big Saturn 1B, put a 38mm DISPLAY STAND mount with 29mm DISPLAY STAND conversion and call it a display piece. No parachutes required.

Speaking of display pieces, every man cave of a rocketeer needs one of these!

Are they using it for a coffee table? I'd have to put a longer BT on it. Might need to turn a NC too. I can't quite tell if it has the proper dimensions with the BT so short. It's pretty close. My OCD tells me to fix the scale every time I look at it. lol
