Default New kits!

Sorry about the scant posts lately. As usual, another major event and we are behind. We have been trying to finish up some that we have had in the works for a long time.

Coming up next:

SPEV - with BT-52 parts instead of BT-50 as originally planned (thanks John Brohn)
Defender - with all balsa transitions instead of the one paper one as original (thanks John Dyer)
Centurion - to match the original prototype (long balsa nose cone) instead of production (cheaper short plastic nose cone)

Hopefully, by NARCON...

This is only on SVDT thread, for now, until we get closer to having SOMETHING ready. The commemorative kit is the 50th Anniversary Mark II. It was 50 years ago that Orville Carlisle got G. Harry "hooked" on model rocketry with that rocket. Seems like only yesterday.

And... we now have the SVDT discount code activated for 30% discount to members. We were going to do 20% plus 10% for NAR members, but I think all but 2 SVDT members are also NAR members anyway.

Cool. I just finished an SPEV with 24mm power, but I'll definitely build a kit. The Defender and Centurion have been on my cloning list for a while also.

It's not often that I'm rendered speechless, but Carl seems to make that happen on a semi-regular basis.

So, are you doing reserved # kits still? If so, please put my name down for one of each of those. Thanks, Carl!

Just a quick reply. We are going back to the old method of the numbered kits (first come first serve). Carl will announce the kits to the SVDT a few hours before going public. As usual we are pushed for time-still waiting for the Centurion instructions. We were hoping to release them before NARCOM but they may not be shipped out until we get back.

Thank you all for your support of Semroc and your patience,

Sheryl

Sheryl,

Not to be (more of a) pain (than I normally am), but have you already marked down those of us on this thread or will be have to respond once they are announce? Some of us are leaving Thursday to drive to NARCON and will not be near a computer.

Just completed the #17 SLS Aero-Dart and the #14 SLS Explorer,

Thank you for all you do for the rocketry community.

Chas

Sheryl,
I just checked the Semroc website and I do not see the new kits there yet.

And here I thought the jaw-droppingly good Semroc service couldn't get any better....

Thanks, Carl!
