It is the time of year for inventory reduction. Hopefully these will be rereleased once in a while if there is interest. I ordered all the parts I could to complete my Hustler. The other parts I have are from when Sheryl put up the company for sale. Would have bought the Saturn but just can't justify the expense right now. My original Estes is long gone.

As long as the parts are available, no rocket is truly gone.

Well . . . I spent 2 1/3 months of "fun money" on:

Hustler
Aero-Dart
Explorer
Orion

These will likely be the last rockets I buy in a LONG time. I have so many kits and projects in the pipeline. But I have a special feel for the old "Mini Max" era kits. And the Orion is just too cool.

Agree with regards to the old Mini-Max and Enerjet kits.
Those are my favorites from Centuri.

.....he said before he started sanding and sealing all those little fiddly bits.
At least the kit's bits are laser cut. We did ours totally from scratch.
