There were just (3) CC kits being dropped, right? I think I bought a pair of each way back when, but even the spare "to build" wound up being a low number, so I'll now have to find some unnumbered to toss in the build queue. At this point though, even my build queue is starting to resemble a collection!

It's too bad this concept wasn't more popular. It would be interesting to know how many were sold and how many complaints came in. I know any complaints are too many, but I'm sure a lot were sold and built without problems. *raises hand*

I have to admit the X-21 plans are a royal PITA though...

I liked the cc: kits. I have the X-21 but I haven't built it yet.

The other 2 came out real nice. The Space Plane went together real easy and I didn't bother to download the instructions since I still had the instructions from the Space Plane I got in 1967.

I flew it today on an OOP A5-2 motor and it put in a real good flight despite the windy day, landing about 15 - 20 ft from the trees. I may not have risked it if I thought I wouldn't be able to replace it.

Carl, sorry to read you're discontinuing the cc: kits. I was going to order the SST Shuttle so
I can have a "fresh" replacement to my Centuri version I still have (yes, it still flies, but the
vacumform parts have become brittle over the years -- since 1970!). And maybe the Space
Plane, since that was my first boost glider back in 1969. I lost that model somehow and long
to get one back in my fleet. If you can keep a list of required parts for famous vintage model
rockets, that would be great for those (like myself) who can just go that route and download
the instructions and work from there.

Keep up the great work!

Carl still has, or did as of Friday night, SST Shuttle's in stock. Use your SVDT discount.

You can get the other two from JonRocket as I did or Uncle Mike's Rocket Shack.

As of the time of my post they still have them available. Don't delay, buy today! heh

John at JonRocket said he's seen a big run on the CC kits over there as well. Must just be from SVDT members because I don't believe Carl has made it public knowledge yet about the CC kits going OOP.

I just went to the LHS and picked up the SST they've had hanging since SEMROCs first started showing up there. Only reason I had not picked it up before was I had eyes for the Sat1B and a few others at the time...

Conflict resolved...

I have moved this announcement and discussion to the mainstream forum. I intended to do it days ago after the SVDT had first notice.

It appears JonRocket is now out of the X-21 and Space Plane now. That leaves just Uncle Mike's Rocket Shack and any LHS's that may still have them on the shelves. I should go checkout Greenfield News & Hobby to see what they may have.
