#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.

Sounds cool, especially the TomKitty. :D

Carl,
Are these going to be 18mm or 24mm powered ?

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.

Since they "grew", I have been calling them Groonies; Sheryl has been calling them "Grownies" since the themes are more "grownup." :)


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.

Sounds really cool Carl. Can't wait to see those!

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!

:)
