Default Another SEMROC milestone and a contest

We are celebrating our sixth kit to sell over 1000! Which one is it?

Better yet. Name our top six sellers since 2002 and win a gift certificate worth $100. Name them in the correct order and make it $200. Change your post as often as you like, but we will use the final answers on May 27 to determine the winner. In case of a tie, we will have a sudden death match online to guess the most likely next kit to sell over 1000, based on sales as of May 27. The contest is only open to SAM's, but everyone else can play for fun.

From an old thread:

By quantity: (all over 1000)
1. Boid
2. Laser-X
3. Saturn 1B
4. Golden Scout
5. Mars Lander
6. Swift

#6 should have been Swift/Swift BG combined. I had an error in the SQL command that combined sales of LIKE named kits. It was premature to call the Swift as the 6th kit selling over 1000. I never went back and changed the original post since it did not seem important at the time.

Now we have passed the 1000th mark for the sixth SINGLE kit without having to combine it with another similar sounding kit.

This makes it much easier. Was the 6th kit still the Swift or another kit? Has the order by total sales changed since that post? Hmmm... Now it is still interesting.

Contragulations!

I'll go with Hydra VII as the 6th. Unlikely, probably, but it's my favorite Semroc kit, and it should be on the list!

1. Boid
2. Laser-X
3. Saturn 1B
4. Golden Scout
5. Mars Lander
6. Hydra VII

Realized after I hit "Submit" that the choice of a recently released kit was just plain wrong. It'll be a long wait to find out the correct answer. Possibly the Micron, but I'd like it to be the BatRok. After all, I bought three with one for my wife.
