Same as the KV-32 Centuri Marauder?

Yep.

Looks like some chances to 'vote' (via purchase) of supporting eRockets bringing back some Semroc kits. Of course, if they don't sell that's just more ammo for eRockets to conclude people don't want these kits.

I would hate to think that is Randy's reasoning behind re-issuing out-of-production Semroc kits.

The Marauder does seem to me to be an unusual choice.
Perhaps he had a bunch of left-over parts and made them into Marauder kits (?).

My recommendation to make a limited production run of 'retired' kits that might have a better chance of quickly selling out would be an Estes Bandit (K-48), Ranger (K-6), Scrambler (K-37) or Shrike (K-46). For Centuri Astro-1, Centurion , Excalibur, Lil' Hercules or Vector-V.

Just my thoughts.

No, I don't think that is his reasoning for re-issuing kits to begin with; I was saying, basically, if people don't buy re-issued kits, then he will not have great reason for re-issuing those kits again in the future.

If I didn't already have 2 of the KV-32 in the bag, I'd get one of these. Two stagers are so much fun! I'm on a mission to build clones (or originals, when feasible) of all Estes & Centuri multi-stagers, with a long way to go. No idea how far behind I am.
