What is your favorite in-production Semroc kit?
I sure like the Texas Firefly a lot. The staging system is very simple yet elegant and it is a ton of fun to launch. I have built around 15 of the current Semroc kits, ranging from the Triton to te Arcas, and they all rock for various reasons, but I enjoyed the Texas Firefly the most.

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

SAM #68

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.

Survey says...
Well, nobody else is gonna do it, so here goes :o :

--But only for now. The recurring comment I get is that it's not big enough. (I mean, c'mon! I designed the original *six whole years* ago. Almost. ;) )

These days, I have to agree. However, I'm not able to remedy that just now, since I have some other things (Real Life, for example) looming on my plate... Er, horizon.

I could vote for some others, but (mock heavy sigh) they're not available just yet. :eek: :rolleyes:

Hey, I just got this catalog to order parts to build something called an Interociter... :chuckle:

My favorite ---- the retro-repo of the Centuri Javelin, which was my first model rocket.

Aerobee-Hi with a mini-engine mount

Mars Lander and Saturn 1B tied for first.
SLS Hustler and SLS Aero Dart tied for third.

Probably the Space Shuttle. It is an enjoyable build and the three elements all come down at about the same rate...

If you twisted my arm further, I would probably admit to a love/hate relationship with the Taurus

I was just reading the 1976 Centuri catalog page of the Space Shuttle. So, Semroc's kit still has is as it was back then with the 3 separate elements to chase? I HAVE to have one now!

All their stuff is great but I'd pick the Saturn 1B as my favorite.

Of the kits I've built, I most enjoyed building and flying the Hydra VII the most.

It's too bad that one ended up as a lawn dart :( I'll have to save up and build another one eventually.
