Does the Solar Flare look familiar to anyone but me? I swear Shrox kitted that design or provided the plan somewhere, but I can't find it.

As Bill said, Daedelus is indeed the Shrox Icarus

Lancer is the old Shrox Stiletto

Glad to see these coming back. More Shrox is always a good thing!

Later,

My boy's gonna love the Lancer. He likes his Dynastar Snarky by Shrox, though the jigs to fit the intake scoop didn't work too well for him. I don't think either of us could pull off that Lancer paint scheme. From the Tower pic, it looks like they did panels the way they did on the 1350 Interceptor.

I like the Daedalus. I might get one with a HL coupon, but cloning the old Andromeda and USS Atlantis would have to come first.

Yes, the Lancer looks to be the old Shrox Stiletto. Here is my Shrox kit, still in the bag. (I can't remember how many years ago that I bought it.)

Another new model demystified! Like others who have posted, I am quite pleasantly surprised that Estes has added some Shrox-designed rockets to its product line. RD, I guess it was worth the wait, eh?

Someone obviously had some strong(arm) influence to get these kitted...

Would love to have been a fly on the wall when this lot of proposals was dropped on the table!


Inspired by Shrox himself (2006).................it's nice being a fly sometimes!!!!!

Not that I'm not grateful to Estes for coming out with a couple of new and interesting kits, namely the Lancer and Deadius, but I hope this isn't it for 2008.

For the 50th I was hoping for something big like a Sat V, Sat 1B, an Andromeda or maybe some new maxi-brute.

Who knows, maybe they will do some staggered releases throughout the year...
