These are so cool! I wonder what the value of a Hydra VII kit from Semroc Mk. 1 would be?

Those were pics of motors I have seperate from the kits. Will send some pics of ones thru bag. Anyone need any kit info, let me know. Am about to put em back into box & dont wanna keep doin this. The bags are so airtight, no air will escape from them-like working w/inflated balloons ! 1970s air ! ( SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSniff !) dannymrmissile.

Man, now I really wish I'd ordered something from Semroc back in the day. Had the catalog, but I think I must've had some anti-regional bias -- and I'm from the region! Oh well.

Never saw Semroc products in California during the late 1960s-early 1970s.

I wonder if Semroc had their motors California Classified?

[2] How did those original Semroc kit's shock cord anchors work? (From the kit parts illustrations in the "Rocketeer Collector's Journal," it looked like a card stock strip with two slits cut parallel to its long sides--as if the strip was perhaps rolled into a cylinder and glued down inside the body tube, like the anchor ring used in the early Centuri Astro-1 kits.)

[3] Are the instructions in the original Semroc kits in booklet form as in the current kits?

Many thanks in advance for shedding any light on these!

Wow. I had wondered if an original Semroc kit would ever surface and you've run across three of 'em. Nice snag. Thanks for the photos.
