I know Carl at Semroc originally planned to clone the Enerjet Athena, but he never came up with a reliable source to reproduce the Vacu-formed wraps for the kit.
The original wraps for the Athena were also shared with the 1/100 scale Centuri Saturn 1B.

Aye, carumba! ...and I thought I had a lot! I AM NOT WORTHY!

There's a fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.

I am so much worse...I built one before realizing I had built it before,

59 manufacturers?! I DO believe it but I had no idea there have been so many! I can probably rattle off 25 or 30, but not 59.

How do you pick your next build when you have a collection like that?


That Estes Bundle #3 is too good to pass up! (6) excellent rockets for $31.00. I added a Nike Apache kit and some rings to it and got free shipping on my $50+ order.

Now THAT'S a sale!
