New Way Saturn 4?
 
In the Nov/Dec 2019 Sport Rocketry -- article about the NARAM-61 Manufacturers Forum, there is mention of New Way Space Models square-bodied Saturn 4. Do any of you know if the kit has been or will be released?

Thx.

Good grief I hope not.
Tubing/bodies of rockets shall be ROUND.

ping Bluegrass Rocket on here....he is the head honcho at New Way Spacemodels.

And despite GH's comments, I have found their kits both very well thought out and good flyers. I'd be interested to see what the current status of that Saturn IV is, as well.

I presume it's still in development. Probably will be released on the Erockets website when ready. See post #3 on this thead:https://www.rocketryforum.com/threa...mx-kits.152733/

Ditto!
Though I wouldn't be shocked if the new moon rocket is square bodied.

I thought I was the only model rocket enthusiast that has zero interest in square rockets ...

Actually, I like body tubes with an infinite number of sides ... I just settle for round tubes.

GH, LeeR,

Whether you like square body tubes or not, do yourself a favor and try one of Rick's kits. Not only are they definitely not the same old thing, but the kits come packaged with little extras to make the builds easier or more pleasant. Definitely way more thought and care for the builder than anyone else's kits. Worth building one just to realize there is a higher standard, and New Way sets it.

Based on the advice of Steve above, I'll order one and give it a try.
