Carl,

Let me chime in here.

No matter how long you take to release the S1b it won't be worse than waiting for another S1b I pre-purchased some years ago. That kit took a loooooooong time to come out. It was worth it though. Yours will be too.

If you were to ask for a prepurchase on some kit I bet you'd be surprised how many people would send you money. Not saying you should do this...just a thought. With your reputation I think people would respond.

Wish i could be there at NARAM. I 'd actually planned to finally attend this year and got laid off. I've found another job but lost all my accumulated vacation. Bummer.

Romie

My Semroc Lil' Hustler got here Thursday. It didn't make the build queue ..... I just had to rip the bag open and build it immediately

The word that best describes this kit: excellent

I do have a question for you guys. Did the Lil' Hustler appear in any catalog photos in these colors between 1967 and 1971? Just curious if this color scheme was derived from a catalog photo or it's just suggested to finish it that way .....

The best I can tell there is no way to know until the '69 catalog. At that point they went with a two ink print (black and yellow) that showed that paint scheme...EXCEPT that the payload section just had a narrow yellow band around the top instead of being all yellow. You can see for your self at http://www.ninfinger.org/~sven/rock...a/69cenp82.html.
Hope this helps!

Thanks and yes, I see what you mean. I poked around a little on the Ninfinger site too and found that the Lil' Hustler seems to appear in the back of the 69 catalog behind the X-21 and in front of the Explorer finished to look similar to the Hustler, only maybe an orange payload section instead of red like the Hustler.

http://www.ninfinger.org/~sven/rock...a/69cenp97.html

What I found interesting the Lil' Hustler isn't in the photo in the back of the 71 catalog as far as I can see

http://www.ninfinger.org/~sven/rock...d/71dcen96.html

I'm not sure how to finish it but I guess I'll decide soon since I'm filling the balsa and basswood later today and should be spraying primer soon.

Hmmm...Your're right, it looks like the Lil Hustler didn't make the '71 back page. I also noticed that the Laser X has a weird all white paint sceme...

They probably lost it on the F67-9 Enerjet ;-)

Maybe I should have built that 24mm motor mount that was included with the kit instead of tossing it to the side .....

I never thought of that. Without a payload an F40-10 is pushing almost 3,000 feet in this rocket and that's less motor than the F67 was

Yep, you'd better put a buzzer in that sucker or it's GONE.....
I just built a buzzer from Radio Shack parts that's going into all my high performance stuff...It cost about 6 bucks to build, which is nothing compaired to the agony of never seeing a prized model again!

This is encouraging news.

However, I'll wait for the announcement on the Semroc website to know it is official.

No pressure, Carl. No pressure.
