I also see indications of possible Retro-Repro versions of the FSI Echo 1 and the Enerjet Egg Crate.

And also the great big 2" (ST-20) entry into the Thunder series (ThunderStorm). It will be by far the largest rocket that Semroc will have ever released.

At the other end of the spectrum, the Micro Arcas, Semroc's entry into the MMX category/camp/cult.

Default New Releases

We will be putting the five new kits online shortly. Wanted you to know first. We will not ship any until we return from NARAM. The early start for NARAM this year got us behind!

Interesting the Semroc Redeye takes T motors. The wrap on the original kit states 1/2A6-2 only. Someday I will stick a C6-7 in it

The streamer-recovered 13 mm motor mount not only enables flyers to use a greater variety of total impulse levels in the Red-Eye, but it also makes the "Retro-Repro" Red-Eye 'NAR-Kosher' at contests, since no ejected motor cases fall un-retarded by any recovery device. Also:

The Red-Eye's streamer-lowered motor mount should also fit in Semroc's "Retro-Repro" Lil' Hercules (see: http://www.semroc.com/store/scripts...s.asp?SKU=KV-14 ), since it also has a #7 body tube (both rockets' body tubes should be the same length), making this motor-ejecting tumble recovery model "contest-legal" as well. A similar streamer-recovered 13 mm motor mount with BT-5/BT-20 centering rings would work nicely in a clone of the Estes Streak, for which Semroc makes the nose cone and has BT-20 (instead of mylar BT-10) tubing.

I was hoping out of ALL the 'coming soon' entries at Semroc that ONE of this five would have been the Gemini Titan.

The G-T has just moved to the coming soon list. It is the most requested on the list, but it has many issues. It is not a very accurate scale model; semi-scale is a generous description. The original came out about the same time as the K-22 V-2, which is also a semi-scale at best .It is one of our most successful xKits, even with its problems. Nostalgia is probably the reason.

The plastic fins are the biggest problem. I will try laser cut Lexan 3/32" clear fins when I get time The original CAB fins are hard to do for most modelers. Like the Saturn 1B, the G-T will probably be closer to the original version than trying to make it into something else (like a faithful scale model ).

The final problem is the price. It has lots of parts make it a $40+ kit which makes it too expensive. for most people. An option is to just release it as an xKit; a bag of parts for experts.

An xKit as close as possible to the original would be my first choice although whatever is released count on one sold. I know the price will be fair even if it is high.

I saw the different chrome wraps Semroc created for the Red Eye kit.

Funny.

It would be worth it to buy five Red Eye kits just to get one each of the differnet wraps.
