I have a Gemini-Titan from olden days. I actually flew it once, but used B4-4 motors and it ejected about five feet off the ground.

I repaired most of the damage, but after 12 years have not gotten around to rebuilding the ****ed transparent fin can.

I would buy the Semroc fin can parts if they are available separately.

Yes, the motors back in the '60s had paper end caps. I actually have a Centuri C6-0 with a paper end cap in it. Collector's item, no?

Even with the clay caps, I stuff some wadding or dog barf in each motor of a cluster. Learned that lesson the hard way many, many years ago. Miss the Centuri Sure-Shots (originally RDC (Irv Wait, blessed be thy name)), but the Quest Q2G2 squib is wonderful. I fly with DARS, the Dallas section, so their launch system will handle four Estes igniters or "starters" without a shrug.

Okay. I am over 60. I need the SEMROC GT now, or pretty soon, or before my expiration date.

Looks like the two Groonies (Snake Jumper and Yung'un's Nuke) are getting VERY close. They show in the "coming soon" page and instructions are up - carrying dates of 7/9/13 and 7/6/13 respectively.

I have an unbuilt GT from PD Rocketry that eventually I will get around to building.

All the kits and potential kits are linked on the Semroc page I originally posted.

However, here's the GT's link by itself.

Default Sam Air?

This looks intriguing. Recovery via "Helicopter/Bright Streamer." I have no idea what this could be.

Oh! What's this? Can it be...? IT IS!

http://www.semroc.com/Store/scripts...s.asp?SKU=KV-73
http://www.semroc.com/Store/scripts...s.asp?SKU=KV-72

Both are listed as "Planned" at this point. Which means, maybe Christmas release?

My list is getting longer and longer...
