Hey Bob you either are experiencing Centuri-itis, or the Starfire was a typo. Starlight reissue? Thank-you Estes!

My brain is wired to the vNARCON internet system.

It only works right some of the time.

I ordered mine last night. I just wish there was a better deliver option than FedEx. Last time they just left my delivery of the BB XII at the end of my driveway, nearly in the road. Almost like they dropped it off barely stopping. Never had issues with USPS or UPS. Maybe its just a lousy driver on my route that does not care or doesn't follow delivery instuctions.

The only reason I haven't ordered one is the outrageous price.
I have several Semroc ones anyway.

I have always like this design, but what I want to build is a 1.67 upscale.

BT-60 for the main body tube. The two rings need to be 3.7" OD.

I cannot help but wonder whether Carl had this in mind with the RT-99 which may or may not have ever been available for purchase.

It was available for purchase, and the RT-99 was an Estes part used in the Mars Lander and Starship Enterprise kits (according to Brohm's reference).
