The one Semroc 1B I have was purchased from Carl, in person, at iHobby - we had a good long conversation about the kit and Semroc. I built the model that winter, and continue to fly it about once every other year. I'm glad the kit's being made available to those who didn't get the chance while it was in production.

Yesterday started my one year commitment to get my Saturns built before the Apollo 11 50th anniversary.
I have an Estes 1/100 Saturn 1B ready to paint. Next Iíll do an Estes Saturn V. After that, Iím not sure of order, but Iíve got a 1/100 Little Joe II. Seems appropriate to have these same-scale models done.
Iíve got a Semroc Saturn 1B Iíd love to get done, as well as the Estes 1/45 Little Joe II.
This is going to be a busy year.

I've been thinking along the same line: A year should give me plenty of time to both finish up the half-done kits ( Estes 1/100 1-B, Semroc 1-B, Dr. Zooch SA-5 and Estes 1/45 LJ II ) along with building at least 1 of the Estes Saturn V's and maybe even taking on the Apogee Saturn 1-B or Saturn V.

I haven't been paying too much attention lately; has anyone heard what the 'Bonus' is with the new Estes Saturn V?

Might as well get a Sirius 1:64 Saturn V too.

At NARAM yesterday my friend purchased a Carl (or we said Sheryl) Saturn. The main difference between a Carl/Sheryl saturn and an e-rockets Saturn is that you don't want to open a Carl/Sheryl Saturn unless you are going to build it right then, because you'll never ever get it back into the box!

Thatís for sure. Stuff popped out at me like a Jack-in-the-Box. I loosely taped it closed. If I donít build it this next year, I may just put it in a larger box.

I just returned from NARAM-60 Pueblo, CO. Great time and nice people. Saw some old farts I got started with. The Saturn 1B offer has been well accepted. I am running a couple ads in Sport Rocketry to get the word out. I still estimate about a 1 year supply or so.

Order U.S. Rockets kits at the same time to save shipping.

I did interviews with the illumaniti of model rocketry at NARAM Pueblo and I plan to offer it thru NARTS for the first year as an overpriced fundraiser for the club we all love. Support the NAR. Buy it at the randomly selected price of $62.50 (a G motor propellant mass) half of which goes to NAR, half to production costs and ZERO profits! Once production costs are covered 100% to NAR!! Includes a DVD and a password to Vimeo for the full res 2K version. PROFESSIONALLY PRODUCED!
