I just like teasing Carl from time to time about this. It's something I've been waiting for Semroc to release since they started the company back up again. The problem they've had is they can't find clear payload tubing in that size.

If anyone has suggestions on where to get CPT-10 size plastic tubing, please pass the info on to Carl.

I understand.

I was doing likewise, teasing all the folks who've complained about some of the recent Estes returns (ie, retro-kits) using similar but slightly different tubes.

I find some of the differences to register well down in the noise, so to speak

That said, I guess I need to build an ST-10 scale Midget

Heh, I was one of those complainers!

I have a box of original Centuri CPT-102 and CPT-103 tubing here so I could make my own "true" Payloader II clone using all Semroc parts. I've just been hoping that Semroc can find CPT-10 tubing themselves sometime.
