Sheryl, thanks. All that makes perfect sense.

Amen! That was why it took me 2 1/2 years before Carl could release my Tau Zero design as a kit. (shuddering, sweating)

Sheryl do you recall if the Trident was first released as an x-kit? The Semroc x-kit page lists a price for it so I think it was. If it was and anyone got one, I would love to see it and get the release date from it.

Fairly sure the Trident I built LONG ago was a Semroc X-kit, but I can't find the kit bag/header/instructions with my stash of empty kit bags. Sorry.

Thanks, I didn’t include it in the list as I can’t find evidence of release yet.

Also thanks to all the help here I created a thread with all the kits released by Carl except commemoratives:

I did find good evidence for the Trident xkit
https://www.oldrocketforum.com/show...=Semroc+trident
but would love to see if someone has the instructions to see if there is a date.

Found my Trident X-kit. No dates on the front of the facecard, nor any printing on the back. The facecard mainly protects the balsa sheet.
I will try to see when I ordered it when I get time to wade through the invoices.

Thanks, There is a post in the forum 7/18/09 where someone said they found it on the Semroc site for sale, and Karl said in the same thread it was a quiet release but didn’t say when it was released.

I checked my invoices and found that I ordered two of the XES-33 Trident X-kits on July 18, 2009. So it was released on that date. Sheryl sent them right out as usual. I apparently sold one kit. I have built, but not painted one of the later Trident kits with the two piece side tubes.

Chas.

Thank you so much, I think we have all the data we can get from all the kit instructions and I have good release dates for the rest.
