Four ANTARs have been built and mailed back.
Presently two more are being built.

With the kit release, a build has been started on my blog:

Decided to use my Christmas gift card from my son and daughter-in-law for my ANTAR (plus a few other bits and pieces) - less than hour after I placed the order the shipping notice popped up. Yes, I know itís just from the label being created but still fairly impressive. Last couple packages that shipped via the USPS arrived on time and intact hopefully itís an ongoing trend😉

Looks like AC supply started taking orders for the Estes Antar and will start shipping on 5/14/2021.

Just placed my order. Wonder if it'll get here before my March order?

My order from Estes was shipped the morning after I placed it, arrived in three days - CO to OH. Maybe the USPS is FINALLY back on track. The ANTAR kit is well done - nice parts, very solid, thick balsa in my kit, good looking decals, looks to be a fun, easy build but a bear of a paint scheme, the masking and decal placement will definitely be a challenge! Iíll be using Chris Michielssenís blogposts to get the paint as close as I can - though the forest green in the scheme may turn into dark orange 😉 Thought about changing mine to 24mm power but Iíll just use a QJet if I feel the need for more altitude.

The only thing I tolerate being shipped USPS is motors.
The $37 fee for motors thru UPS or FedEx is nothing but a RIPOFF the govt allows them to charge as a haz-mat fee. They do not have to charge that fee. It's a big can of SCAMULATION.

Many years ago someone shipped rocket motors labeled "model aircraft parts" until discovered.
NEEDLESS TO SAY, I LIKED THAT SHIPMENT METHOD along with the "ride the boot" attitude it conveyed to the gubmint "shipping cops"
