I had TWO Hawk's Hobbies Super OT kits.
I sold one when "thinning the herd" and the other I cannot FIND....GRRR....I'm sure it's somewhere.
That kit is BT-60 Booster/BT-55 Orbiter based, which is a nice size.

I understand the eventual Semroc one is ST-20 Booster/ST-16 Orbiter based, which is the next size bigger, which is even better for allowing R/C gear in the Orbiter.

If anyone has an extra Hawk's Hobbies kit available for sale, I'm interested.

I should have bought "one each" of all the other Hawk's super-size and Q Modeling's upscales when they were available. Unfortunately I know Hawk's is never coming back, and after Q-Modeling announcing a "coming soon" comeback without it happening, I think we are more likely to see new production real Enerjet Athena kits.

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask what is "NORMAL" , you probably aren't !

Failure may not be an OPTION, but it is ALWAYS a POSSIBILITY.

Managed to secure a Hawk's Hobby Super OT kit.
Many thanks to the provider.

This one is big enough to be a worthwhile upscale.
The Estes one, while larger than the original, is barely an upscale.
They should have done it "Pro Series" sized with BT70 orbiter, BT80 Booster.

You still should scratch build one.
