Default Pimp Daddy Rocketry

I flew a couple of my PDR birds yesterday and posted some pics on Facebook. Someone asked what PDR was and I checked EMRR/RocketReviews to see what kits were listed under the name. Very few were listed and I know they had a fairly impressive lineup. I had the A-20 Demon, Cassiopeia, Starlab, USS Atlantis and Space Station Aquarius and I know my wishlist was at least 20 deep. Anyone able to add to the list?

PD Rocketry - A-20 Demon {Kit}
PD Rocketry - Alien Explorer {Kit}
PD Rocketry - Alien Invader {Kit}
PD Rocketry - Astron Goblin
PD Rocketry - Astron Omega
PD Rocketry - Astron Renegade
PD Rocketry - Astron Trident
PD Rocketry - Cherokee D
PD Rocketry - Gemini Titan {Kit}
PD Rocketry - Honest John
PD Rocketry - Mars Snooper
PD Rocketry - Orbital Transport
PD Rocketry - Orion Starfighter
PD Rocketry - S.S. Cassiopeia {Kit}
PD Rocketry - Scorpius
PD Rocketry - Solar Sailer {Kit}
PD Rocketry - Space Station Aquarius {Kit}
PD Rocketry - SPEV
PD Rocketry - Starlab {Kit}
PD Rocketry - Starship Excalibur
PD Rocketry - Thor Agena-B {Kit}
PD Rocketry - Torellian Invader
PD Rocketry - USS Atlantis {Kit}
PD Rocketry - USS Hyperion
PD Rocketry - Vostok
PD Rocketry - World Federation Star Probe

Comrade Bill,

I have an Honest John (M-31, BT-50 size) and the Thor Agena. There maybe more in the build pile. It's way too hot to check the attic.

I tried the Wayback Machine, but I can't figure out the results. Seems to be telling me that others are looking for it as well. Maybe it's too far back?

Forgot about the SPEV. I think the reason I didn't get one was because I'd just cloned it.

I also have their World Federation Star Probe.

I seem to remember they kitted something very expensive in their last few months of existence but can't remember for sure what it was.
It may have been the ESS Raven.

I think they kitted the Astron Renegade and Astron Omega also. Fairly certain they did a Goblin too.

I just re-acquired one of their K-21 Gemini Titan clones to build.

If they did the Raven, it was done very quietly. I was there beginning to end, including the forum, and if that had been mentioned I couldn't have thrown my money fast enough.
