Wow (spoken in a Ben Stein voice)...

The Sat1B is back! :D

And is that the old Cox X-15? :)

...A "D" powered egglofter...

...A 2" diameter, cluster-"D"... :cool:

...And a water-tight payloader for 18mm, with a supply of Sea Monkeys (or is that Sea Monkees?) to go with it... :rolleyes:

"Hey, hey, we're space monkees!"... :eek:

So many ideas to... borrow... :D

Did you guys check out the description on the Sat1b? *LOL*

A new kit not officially announced by Estes! An advanced construction kit of the Saturn 1B in 1/70 scale. This kit, although the same size as the kit released in the 1960s, should be all new, with minimal plastic parts. Approximate length 37 inches and 4 inches in diameter. Rumored to be powered by a single D or E motor. Correct pricing with more up-to-date and complete info will be posted when available. This info and availability is subject to change. Please note: this item, if made at all, will not be available until late summer of 2006, or later

Hehe, yup! I'll believe when I actually see it. I wish they'd make it available to build as either a single 24mm OR a 4-18mm cluster though. I'm sure someone will come up with a hack for it if it's released to build it the "correct" way. :D
