#6 is for Lee Piester and #7 was Scott. HE watches it closely! Sometimes I think he is watching me type!

They will not be SLS, just slightly bigger. I would hate to try an F in one!

The first four are based on the originals (Saki, Rooskie, etc.) I have an F-14 version. These are more military in concept. They will not be like the Estes released Goonies or Phred's style.

Better check your computer for spyware.

Sounds cool, especially the TomKitty.

"#6 is for Lee Piester"

Excellant! What a great idea to present the kit to Lee. I was amused to see that in Launch magazine's latest issue they reran the picture of Lee signing my Semroc Hustler model last year at NARAM. He and Bety are good people. I hope that they make NARAM-50 next year with the Estes.

Great idea. I can only echo what Buzz just said. I was never a big fan of the Goonies. But, with reproducing the original concept drawings, upgrading the motors, it is an awesome idea, with much more (current) mass appeal. I think you've got a winner here.

Are the Groonie Grownies going to be next? Or the "Thunder" birds? or the Omega/Cineroc? Can't wait.

Hehe. Big brother is watching!

Thanks, Carl. I'm sure Lee will love getting the kit.

Great ideal Carl.

That was one of the most interesting threads to have appeared on this forum. Reserve me a whole set.

Carl,

I noticed the name and specs are now showing for the KA-12 Saki rocket on the Semroc site ..... any estimation on when the Saki kit will be released?

KA-12 Saki Rocket

Thanks!
