Genuine Semroc Saturn 1-B
When Semroc announced they would discontinue their Saturn 1B I took the initiative to purchase all remaining stock so people can continue to purchase them over time even if you missed the announcement or come late to the party.

I have what I consider to be "many" NIB Genuine Semroc Saturn 1B kits. I am selling them to any taker. Limit 4 per person please. $129.95 each (the last retail price) plus $12 flat shipping per order whether you order 1,2,3, or 4.

Once I get down to under 24 remaining rockets I will increase the price fairly substantially. $195.

My goal is to let people who do not follow the hobby news daily to still have access to this historical rocket and amazing kit at its former market price.

Just email quantity and your ship address to which is also the Paypal for after you receive it. Yes we trust and bill our customers. Please specify if your address is not Fedex Ground compatible and we can ship USPS. Foreign orders will have their shipping billed by email. Canada is roughly USD $16 for one kit. $36 for more.

No confirmations required in the thread. :D Comments about service more than welcome. And pictures!

The response to this offer has been good. I had hoped to have a 2 year supply so folks that do not follow the rocket sites regularly can get one. I was a bit optimistic. Looking closer to a year now. I would be happy if Saturn 1B nuts would post the link to this thread to their FB accounts or to TRF. I posted to the NAR FB page already.

When I see some of the prices for discontinued kits on Ebay and such I think, I can fix that, but only for a limited time. That's why I did it.

You will not see me selling them on my Ebay account for marked up prices.

A couple people contacted Randy at eRockets and he referred them to me. I have enough Semroc Saturn 1B's for several months at least.

I am going to run ads in Sport Rocketry and Hobby Merchandiser magazines. Look for them. There is no dealer discount however. :(

I ran an ad in Sport Rocketry for this offer. Look for it and pass it along to non-members you see at launches.

Just Jerry

Jerry, are these "Carl" 1-Bs? I have been away from rocketry forums for a while and I'm not sure if eRockets ever produced this kit.

Matthew, I can answer this one for Jerry. No these are the eRocket Saturns. When I announced the closing of Semroc, all our Saturns were mailed out plus extra parts we had for them. But I can also say, Randy (eRockets) used our programs for each part plus the same equipment so even though Carl and/or Bruce didn't cut the parts and I didn't kit up the Saturn, they would be the same as being made in NC.

Thank you, Sheryl. :)

I have one of yours that I'll never open. It would be nice to have a Semroc 1-B to build. :)

I was on vacation so I want to say Sheryl is correct. I have been getting very positive feedback for not issuing eBay pricing and patiently waiting for fanboys to order. We used to order from Carl in the oldest of the old days at Claremont Rocket Society in the 70's and he was a major element of the industry. Thanks Carl.
