I never had an Akela-1, but I wanted one. (I wanted to join the scouts, too, but by the time I came along my parents were older and didn't have the energy--my five older siblings were all scouts, though). If, speaking hypothetically, Akela-1 kits were produced again, I would buy some; and yes, tbzep is right about the differences between the Estes Viking and the Centuri Viking (which the Akela-1 is, just in a different [Scout colors] livery).
