The Saros is my oldest rocket, built in 1976. I carried to NSL-2018 in Geneseo. Vern and Gleda signed it for me. Yes, it has been retired.

Ive always wanted it to get re-introduced. I started on an upscale but so far just have the nose cone turned. It will need the little fin nubs added.

Id like to see the Centuri T-Bird three stager, and in the same diameter (same clear payload tube, too) the Centuri Payloader II. The latter was one re-introduced back in those bring backs about 7-8 years ago or so, but it was not the same diameter and just did not do it for me. Centuri Skylab also.

Estes Bomarc...either Citation or parachute recovery.

Ooh, Skylab! Excellent choice.

You guys are all missing the obvious kit. An LTV Scout! Like the Saros it had unique plastic parts.

I agree - bring back the Centuri Skylab and LTV Scout.

The boost-glide Citation Bomarc would be great, NOT the chute recovery one.
+1 to a functionally flying Cylon Raider.
Black Hole Cygnus Probe Ship but call it something unrelated to the movie.
Nike Ajax.

I suspect that our "wish lists" might not quite conform to Estes' notion of "lesser known classics and launch never-before seen designs." I'd be surprised if there will be any 'lesser known classics' that are scale models.
