Spacemaster was before the Satellite Interceptor if I'm not mistaken.

Ok, I'll have to take a look; don't recall what the Spacemaster looks like (memory must be
fading ).

It looks like the Satellite Interceptor and the Crossbow SST.

I gotta say I like the Ricochet and the Plasma Probe a lot.

The Taser Twin reminds me of the Apogee II kit.

The Equinox kit resembles the Centuri Scram Jet.

Sorry Scott, the Satellite Interceptor, designed by Wayne Kellner, came several years before the Centuri copy. The model in question is a BT-20 size version od the Interceptor, with red replaced with purple on the decals.

And there are no Shrox rocket designs here - these are all the work od Mr. Dorffler.

Definitely some recycled ideas there, which is not a bad thing. Taser twin looks like an Astron Apogee II booster with an Astron Farside looking sustainer. Space Eagle looks familiar too...not sure to what.


All of those designs look pretty good. Wow, we will be able to get some builder type kits from WM again? Hope these will actually see the light someday.

Four of these, the Star Stryker, Ricochet, Crossbow, and Taser Twin are making their way to Wal-Mart shelves NOW.

No plastics - all balsa cones and transitions with laser-cur fins as we members have been wanting. Estes heard us loud and clear.

Doctor - X, thank you very much! I don't know about you guys, but this is a great "stimulus
check" for me. Any chance the B4-6 coming back? That will make an excellent upper stage
for the Taser Twin (and a great engine choice for the B Streamer Duration event, for those of
us who like to fly competition in NAR meets)?
