Top two (Can't decide on just one, sorry) -

SLS Hustler


I have multiple flights on both of these. They are awesome!

There are nine runner ups, and all the SEMROC kit names start with 'SLS'

Gotta go with the SLS 'Hustler' kit.

I sure wish there was a "D" impulse SLS version!

PS - I just noticed that general Semroc threads are supposed to be in the regular forums, so if a mod could move this thread that would be cool.

Right now for me, 98 of their kits are tied for first place. From time to time I have to make room at the top for new additions...

Seriously, answering this question is hard! So is identifying my second-favorite Semroc kit.

So far, my Hydra 7 is my favorite, but I still have so many unbuilt Semroc kits to get to... :D

Mars Lander
Saturn 1B

Like most people, I can't pick just one favorite.

But, two kits that I love are the Golden Scout and the Saturn 1B (mine has a pretty cool signature on it). I also love the Mark II, the Sky Hook, and the V2 xKit.

My favorite is the SLS Explorer, to date. I finished it well and it has always flown great. I like all of the SLS series and hope that more will be added.

Scrambler, launching eggs is just cool man! :chuckle:

Hydra VII, hands down. Original McLawhorn design, a nicely challenging build, and great fun to fly on 7 motors!

I'm pretty sure it will be the Lil' Centauri, as soon as I finish building mine. It's just really pretty.

My favorite rocket built with Semroc parts? Probably my Stellar Hercules. I can't wait to see it fly. But since it's not an actual kit, it sadly doesn't belong here.
