New kits are not available for purchase until the rocket moves from the Coming Soon to the Whats New section of the Website.

Ahh...thanks John.
I missed the fact that it is still "Coming Soon"...oh well...I got some more nice Estes kits at great prices for a LHS and picked up some R/C fuel too.

Doesn't that mean they could still cancel it?

The Starship Nova is either in production about to be put on the water or it is on the water. It takes 4 to 6 weeks to come by ship. It then needs to clear customs which can take a day or WAY longer. Then trucked to our warehouse. I could find out exactly where it is but what fun would that be.

That's phunnie!

Wouldn't it be weird if the verbose tracking info for some, any, product was posted to YORF so folks could see the securitious route imported products take? I export.

I want to remember that Estes catalog said the were both from the Nova Empire or something, which makes them connected that way.
Dang, man, there's only one of me and my health is a mess, but maybe the cancelled dream of launching a Nova Starship flanked by a pair of Nova Scouts can still come true? Someday?

Now, how would I want to paint them ... not box stock is a given ....

What's the deal with this one ?
Seems like it has been "coming soon" for quite a while.

Well of course, it must be on a.....



















s-l-o-w boat from China.

Don't worry GH, I'm sure you'll find a way to blame it on Trump and his new policies toward China.
