Smile Production of new Semroc (Centuri ) Kits

Let's start a conversation about new Semroc (Centuri ) kits.

I realize that these might not be at the top of the list.And I know many others are higher on the list but I thought I'd get the ball rolling . So here goes.

Sky Devil #3040
The reason I like this little rocket is the muti-choice of fins in one kit. This kit would lend itself to bulk packs sold to educators , Clubs etc.

Excalibur

Groove tube

Along with these two kits would be a seperate kit.

No. 8 Booster Unit.

I have many more wants as far as kits go but these three pretty simple kits could be added to the Semroc line in a fairly short period of time. Maybe within a years time

Your thought?

John

And you likely noticed the ear-splitting silence coming from my direction, too...

It's so easy to think of what we'd like to see packaged up, but then reality bites us in the ... shadows... Those instruction booklets take five times as much work to get them done as it takes to get the model itself developed and flown.

Thumbs up

I'll do it.
I just got a new box of crayons . It will be quick and painless as long I don't keep breaking them.

--Or if you're like me, 10 or 20 times as much work.

My plane is going down in flames i.e. this thread (negative remark) The good news is I can use my seat cushion for a floation device ( Positive remark )
Ok guy's this is going no where I get it ok. So let's move on.

I try to put a postive spin on all this things in life .

Thanks Crig McGraw Your post was the proper reply."It's so easy to think of what we'd like to see packaged up, but then reality bites us in the... shadows...Those instruction booklets take five times as much work to get them done as it takes to get the model developed and flown"

I had a boss that use to tell his employees this "Don't just bring me a another problem .I have enough already. Got a problem , bring me a solution to the problem"

So If the instruction booklets take so long to produce what is the solution to the problem.
Streamline the booklets
Review and change the method of producing instructions booklets
Invest in new or better software programs to do the same job. i.e easier faster
How about some POSITVE INPUT . You have a better Idea lets here it.

John
