Default Launch magazine article

In the article there was a picture of the first catalog, I think it was a green cover with a black silhouette. Are there any Semroc designs out there that have been retired? If so any chance of bringing them back?

That is a copy of the Central Rocket Supply catalog from 1962 mentioned in the interview.

The Aphelion, Swift, XK-23, and Black Brant III have not reen re-released yet. We probably will not do the BBIII since Taras does such a good job with them.

If you don't mind, what was the rocket on the cover of the Central Rocket Supply catalog?

Sorry. I was too fast on that one. The catalog was from Central Rocket Company. Rocket Supply Company was a different early manufacturer that had a division named AMROCS.

The cover model was the Nova CRC7. It was an early two stage model. The engines came in a set of a booster and an upper stage engine.

I believe that I have the instructions for the RDC Nova 3 kit - I'm thinking that it's the 2-stager with 3 paralell motors in the first stage.

I can try to get it scanned if someone needs it.
