Default Finally - Three new kits and a booster

The starship Excalibur slipped out a few hours early. Here are the new ones. I am still working on the web pages.

Starship Excalibur - Classic, even if it took a few more months than we thought.
Centurion-F First Semroc kit for new Estes 29mm BP engines (and some old 24mm ones)
Maxi-Micron Classic upscale
Booster-18 Convert Maxi-Micron to 2 stage

A Booster-18 will be sent free with each Maxi-Micron until April 15.

Great news!

I'm kind of over-stocked with kits, but I might make an exception for the Maxi-Micron. I need a few "big small field flyers." It could pass for the Explorer, but I guess that it is more lightly built.

Order in! Not that I need any more kits....but since I'm going to NSL, I need to do that Centurion F - so as to have something to try out the new Estes 29mm BP motors in. And of course, I am one of many waiting for the Excalibur.

While the Centurion-F is the first Semroc kit to list the new Estes 29mm BP motors for use, I think several of the SLS series models (Aero-Dart, Hustler) would be a better choice due to their mass and lower altitudes they would reach (Could be flown in smaller fields).

Of course, the E16 and F15 motors recall Mini-Max motors Centuri sold so why not fly them in Mini-Max models.

I'm going to pick up a few of the new Estes motors to use in my Hustler, both versions of Aero Dart, Explorer, and Lil'Hustler just for the nostalgia factor of flying them like the originals. None of them have flown on anything but 24 and 29mm RMS reloads ecept the Semroc Aero Dart which flew once on an E9-6. May even try one of the new 29mm F's in my Enerjet Athena Clone.

I don't think I will be brave enough to ever try any 29mm ANYTHING in my Jaguar or Scorpion.
