I hear sometime later in the year 2020 Estes may offer a version of their own Saturn 1B. I have spoken to lots of folks that for whatever reason prefer the Semroc version. I have them. At least for another year.

I get lots of really nice thank you notes on this one. People love the kit.

Just Jerry
