So do I. But if you look in Bob's second picture there you can see that the main body tube looks a little odd. Apparently there was some kind of miscommunication with the supplier and the BT-50 in the kits that are in the warehouse in Penrose don't have a glassine layer. So.....it may be a bit yet before the kits get distributed.

Very cool re-release. Are there any rumors as to any others being considered for the future?

If you want to go back through John's (Jumpjet) posts the last year or so, he's dropped a hint or two. It's up to you to figure them out.

Cool! Thanks, Z! I'd never used that function before.

Still couldn't find the post where John personally guaranteed the retun of the Citation Patriot, though.

I will never guaranty anything and make it a habit to only give vague and cryptic comments to keep everyone wondering exactly what I may be talking about.

John Boren,

Any chance of obtaining one of the Starship Nova kits with the incorrect tube? I have always wanted one and have the Moldin'Oldies nose cone replica and a laser-cut ring set from SEMROC.

Chas

The first production run of this kit will in fact have tubes without glassine on them. The cost and time needed to get new tubes to China would stretch the release of this kit into at least first quarter of next year.
