I think they are on the right track, however. If all they do is primarily basic kits, (as they had been doing) you run the very real risk of getting someone started in the hobby, but then they have no place to grow. What I really like about the new catalog is the wider variety and complexity of the kits (such as the multi-stage kits). It also seems they are getting back to offering more building supplies, something that helps keep folks continuing with the hobby. And it seems there is more products aimed at education and bulk building packs. Time will tell if they have struck the right balance, but to me it looks like they are off to a good start.

I noticed the E30-4 is still recommended for the Saturn V and the only engine for the Little Joe II.
Could not find it or any other composite motors in the catalogue.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and DITCH the brake !!!
