Wes also produced the following kits:

Juno II
Jupiter-C

Mercury Little Joe
Titan IIIC MOL

Orion EFT-1
SLS

Vostok

Crumman C3C
CRV Lifting Body

I know that his Saturns were already listed, but just FYI, here's the list of Saturn 1/1B variants as I recorded them from the labels on the boxes:

Saturn 1 Block II
Saturn 1 SA-5
Saturn 1B
Saturn 1B Apollo 5
Saturn 1B AS-203
Saturn 1B ASTP
Saturn V
Saturn V - Skylab

Hope this helps you towards completing your set of his kits! They truly were awesome. At the end, he was working on a 747 SCA/Shuttle; man, I wish that had made it to kit stage. It looked truly amazing.

Wes shut down for personal reasons but he did reach an agreement with Erockets to take over production of some of the more pipular kits like the Falcon Heavy and Saturn V, both of which are listed on their website now.
it remains to be seen what other ones Randy may bring back.
In the meantime Zooch kits are selling for 3-4 times their original pricre on ebay now.
