It does not include the ThunderStorm, Orion, Egg Crate, Centaur, Taurus, Eos, and some others that are in the works.


Thanks, Carl. If people can't understand what Coming Soon or Planned means, well...

Egg Crate, bonus! Orion, double bonus! Will the Orion have the plastic wraps? I have an original built Orion with the balsa cone if you need a cone for a template.

I'm sure you just forgot to include the Payloader II in your list above.

Now, if you can bring back the BP F100 motors with those FSI kits you're going to be making...

Wonder how this one would scale up for 24mm? (That's what I was expecting when I saw TEXAS.)


I just wanted a FireFly that I could fly. I ran out of A10 boosters and it is no fun flying as a single stage. With modified engine mounts, it can fly with 24mm engines. It needs more nose weight and a MUCH larger field! The prototype flew with a C6-0 to C6-7 at Whitakers a few weeks ago. All I have left of it is the booster.

NOW I see what your marketing plan is, Bill! Sell more replacement upper stages.

The Aerobee-Hi we initially planned was based on the ST-8, slightly larger than the original. We are now doing a BT-40 sized version, very similar to the earliest production runs of the MMI Aerobee-Hi in 1957. The original MMI Aerobee-Hi used a maple nose cone that was later changed to the vinyl one. Estes bought all the remaining stock from Harry and sold it as the BT-40G. Vern said that all the BT-40's they ever sold were bought from Harry. Gleda rolled the first BT-30's but never the BT-40's.

Now I can build an Arrow-C, Bug-A-Bye, ...

I don't have any MMI kits, but I do have original BT-40, a maple cone and a couple of the vinyl/rubber cones here. I'd like to find some of that BT-30 that Gleda rolled using that old mimeograph paper or whatever that old copying machine was called.

My guess would have been that you got tired of answering e-mails, "when's xxxxx going to be ready?"

... and thanks for the link Jay.

No problem. I'm only one of Carl's many unofficial publicity folks.

Kind of like that Mr. Wendy's guy, but less obtrusive.

Speaking of Semroc, I should have some pretty cool pics to share tomorrow night. It's not an official release as yet, but it's Semroc through and through.
I would have had them tonight but I had cafeteria today and didn't get as far along on it as I had hoped I would. (And the Reds were on. And they won. )
