I have a few Semroc kits, my favorites so far are the Defender and the SLS brighton. I would like to see an SLS Defender :D

My first impulse was to answer, "Yes", about my favorite kit. Placed my first order (since 1970) in 11/2003 and can remember the grin on my face as I built the SEMROC Swift. Just a fun build. I do really like the SLS Hustler. Always wanted one back in the Centuri days.
I guess my fave is whichever one I am working on. Or flying.

Great kits, Super people!

SLS Defender.........

Having a pedestrian, 3FNC/4FNC taste in model rockets (*someone* has to), mine are the Semroc Swift and the XK-23.

Yepper. And if there is no wind, possibly three different directions!

Thanks! I can't wait. I ordered mine today (and a Texas Firefly---by accident :rolleyes: ).

I do have a dumb question though: what does SLS mean?

Stop laughing.

I have no doubt that Carl will beat me to it, SLS is Semroc Large Scale which is in turn based on the Centuri series.

So what would you say to a RTB Orion?!?

Triple tie for first....

Saturn 1B
Mars Lander
Orion

Got several tied for second also. ;)

I guess it's a good thing I asked. I don't think I would have figured it out on my own.

April Dancer--sexiest redhead on the market
