Saturn 1B.

Iris, SLS ARCAS, SAM-3.

Hydra VII, Defender.

SLS Laser-X, SLS Hustler, SLS Aero Dart

Mars Lander, Orbital Transport, Space Shuttle.

SST Shuttle-1 xKit. (yeah!)

Oso, Penetrator xKit.

And so on.

You see the problem here? I'm being perfectly honest here; it's a question that I find almost impossible to answer.

I have to go with the SLS Hustler. That is one great rocket that will take a variety of motors from an E to a G (and probably a baby H, too).

Gotta agree. I saw this thread when it started and realized that it was something I needed to mull over before answering. No amount of mulling made the issue any clearer than mud. I'm partial to a couple of birds, but picking one is torture.
I did catch a sniff of something in the pipeline that could blow the doors off of this whole discussion, but that remains to be seen.

SLS Laser-X. I lug this one to every launch. I don't always put it up, but I like it there just in case I get the urge. I just finished my SLS Hustler and am quite fond of it as well.

I'd have to go with the Mars Lander, since I never built an Estes one as a kid, and I have one under construction now. I also have a bunch of others that I could not resist ordering, but sadly, may stay bagged for awhile due to a serious lack of time. SST Shuttle-1, Laser-X (small, need to order the SLS), Saturn-1B, Orion, Cherokee-C, Mini-Omega, etc. etc.)

Met Carl and crew at NARAM last year in Colorado, and it just renewed my interest in buying more and more Semroc kits. Super nice folks, and really great products.

Lil Hustler - perfect size, cleanest build ever

Taurus - Classic

Squire - have built more of these than any other production kit, sweet simplicity and multiple configurations. A designers delight.



Hon Mentions SST, Space Shuttle and IRIS

Default Best Semroc kit?

SLS Aero-Dart - great, straight flights on an E9-6. It's also rugged. If part of it breaks, e-mail Semroc for the replacement part numbers, order them, and you're back in business!
