Tower Hobbies has updated their Estes product listings which include the 'Classic Series' along with the Mongoose, Super Neon XL and a few others that were already known.

However, there are some 'other' Estes Launch Sets/Kits which I was not aware of, and have not seen any information posted.

They are:

Flash E2X Launch Set #1416 (Looks like new decals on the Dragonite E2X kit)

Solar Scouts E2X Launch Set #1495 (Two kits, Sky Dart (Gnome parts) & Farside (BT-20 tube))

These sets have pictures of the rockets.

There are four kits listed (No pictures):

Cosmic Explorer #2421 Skill Level 1

Reflector #2422 SL1

Mini Max #2445 SL1

Magician (Re-issue of #1943?) #2440 SL3

There is a listing for a Rocket Labs DVD

I guess there are more 'surprises' yet to come.

Perhaps it's a version of the "Convertor" but it is designed to "Convert" you into a "Customer"? :chuckle:

I am saving money right now. Centuri kits were not around at the local hobby stores when I was growing up, so I am looking forward to buying at least 2 each. I know they won't be exact replicas but that is ok by me.

Certainly everyone who buys one of these will have been customerized.

Not sure if you can see the license plate on the front of my Duster, but I thought you might be interested.

Classic!

I use to have a 1964 Rambler Stationwagon (my first car given to me by my parents once
I was old enough to drive), then a 1967 Chevy Impala (loved that car - went to a lot of places
rocketry wise with it!).
