I used to tell Mom, "...I want to fly rockets when I grow up!"

She said, "Make up your mind, you can't do both!"

Yes, and get them back into the market place so we can buy them. Very creative designs, Shrox.

I have started cutting out the tube lengths for the Shrox HYPERION. I had this kit when it first came out. I lost the kit in a move. I was lucky and found the instruction I had copied the mesurments of all the tubes on. This is a nice size kit.

Don't give up hope on finding the Hyperion. I've had several rockets reappear since my move, all of which I'd given up hope on. I also had a bunch reappear in 2001 after being lost since 1994/95, one of which was an Estes Little Joe. (I almost typed "Little Hoe".) Needless to say, I was quite happy to see that bird again.

Shrox has posted plans for a number of them , you have to dig thru TRF to find alot of them , these are a few that I see haven't been posted yet that I found plans for and there are more to be found.

I didn't realise just how many rockets Shrox has designed I have a few more that aren't posted yet, of course the sci-fi stuff is his best work

It 's nice to see all these pictures of Shrox rockets. I have his SHX STARSHUTTLE still in the bag. His kits are somewhat easy to clone because he used ESTES size tubes and nose cones. I do hope we see more of his designs.
