Default WANTED: Sheri's Hot Rockets Saturn V

What can I say - I like this kit. I've built two - the first one I flew to destruction (pretty comprehensively destroyed when the I suffered a J275W case rupture CATO). The second one I built with some upgrades and lessons learned from the first one and is a regular flyer (and a very popular one at that). However I'm realistic enough to know if I fly this one on a regular basis, something bad will happen to it eventually. So I want a spare.
Yes, I know Sheri's went away when Red Arrow Hobbies closed down - I'm just hoping someone has a kit laying around that they never got around to building.

Im surprised Dave didn't try to sell the new molds he had made, or maybe he did. IDK .Someone could at least make the parts again.

Any luck finding one? I am also looking for one. Another possibility would be a Polecat Saturn V if I could find one.

No, I managed to find a Mercury Redstone, Mercury Atlas, and Gemini Titan (Redstone off ebay, the other two belonged to locals who sold them to me), but no luck with the Saturn V or Saturn 1B (the S1B is not a priority - I have one that Walt Cunningham signed at NARAM 50 and instantly became display only )
I salvaged enough parts from the first Saturn V after the CATO that I'm pretty sure I can re-create one - making cast resin molds/parts and 3d printed stuff - if it comes to that.
