Default New from NewWay

Iíve been working on this project for about 2 years, trying to decide if I could do it. So, NewWay is going to release a couple of round rocket kits that are clones of old Estes kits. The first one is going to be the MARS SNOOPER II. This is one of my all time favorites and seemed like a good first choice. I have delivered the first small batch to eRockets and they should be available soon on their site. Turns out that there are many differences between square and round rockets so, itís been a learning curve for sure. The photo is of the kit. Thanks.

That is beautiful, one of my favorites, good choice, although it could do with a squarification too!

I will buy one when it becomes available. Also not in the market for square but definitely in the market for this type of kit.

I just pulled the trigger on two MARS SNOOPER IIs.
Looks like a great kit can't wait to see them up close.
