It appears to be unchanged from the previous release, except they are using a new 002100 part number for the kit, while the instructions still use the old 2445 p/n.

I haven't been home to check yet, but I believe that nose cone is the same as one in the NC-50 kit.

I might actually build it with 18 or 24mm power. Which is kinda funny, because I have no plans to build any of my two DRM kits or three DBRM kits or several MDRM nose cones as Red Maxes.


Wish they would've used the correct NC for the Mini-Max. I passed the last time around, and built an ST-10 clone using a SEM-BC-1041G.

Paul,

That was a Semroc upscale of Centuri's PNC-76. Back in the day (1970s), I'd wished it had been available to fit an ST-10 size. Carl was kind enough to oblige.

But yeah, that's the hazard involved in "eyeballing" rocket designs."
