The Mini Mars Lander isn't junk, but the sticker price is much closer to what I'd pay for one.

I'm reasonably sure this is the same set of parts I got a few years back to build mine. Not the greatest quality 3d printed parts, but not bad - and far easier than trying to assemble everything from scratch.
I bought this set and had to toss every single wood part, they were extremely loose, and unusable. I used the Capsule and fins, but not the glue because it was empty, leaked or evaporated. Picked up CRs from eRockets. I'd get Boyce parts if I built another.

This one will probably not last long, but for anyone who wants the Estes Titan IIIE Kit, this may be about the best price you are likely to find. Still shrinkwrapped also.

That's what I call a realistic price.
I wouldn't ever go over $100 on that one.

I think BAH can replicate the parts, but after body tubes and decals you are still over $100.

Yea, that's one of my favorite old kits - they've been fetching around $150 on a regular basis.

A clone of the Estes Titan IIIE was the last new kit to be offered by PD Rocketry.
I don't know if any were produced before they folded up.
I do know it was like $80 for the clone and I thought back then was way too high, so didn't order one.
