Semroc Kit List
 
1 Attachment(s)
I'd like to thank Don Altschwager for sending me what should be a complete list of all Semroc kits.

I'd like to add columns to the list showing when each kit was introduced and when it was no longer produced. If anyone has that info for any of these kits please send it to me and I'll add the columns to the list.

Also, if there are any errors or any kits you see missing please let me know.

Itís a little complicated, because the entire line was discontinued after Carl passed, then rereleased by ERockets, then many discontinued again. I believe I have all the dates but canít get to it for a few weeks.

There were some commemorative kits I donít have info on.

I'm not looking for complicated. ;) I'm looking for dates when Carl released the kits then when Randy stopped producing the kits. I believe some kits ended production when Carl was still running Semroc. Other kits that were available with Carl were not continued under Randy's ownership. For those we could use the year that Carl passed away.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

There's two different Semroc KV-25 Vega model rocket kits also.

Interesting. A completely different nose cone as well. I prefer the original cone myself. I'll add this to the list. Any idea when it was released?

Thanks!

The plastic nose cone on the new improved KV-25 Vega model rocket kit is a PNC-60R and the decal is different as well. I believe this new version came out in February 2020.

The Erockets kits have a Dayton address and should be treated separately from the original North Carolina releases. I have the original Semroc release dates and almost all of the eRockets rerelease dates and original Erockets design release dates.

As Carl, then Randy, released kits, I would buy them and add it to my list. I really did not pay attention to release dates. I think I have at least one of everything.

The Estes lists, I went by Catalog dates or if they happened to be listed on the website.

Some of the odd boxed kits I spotted on Ebay listings or saw someone mentioning them in Rocket Groups posts.
