Default Semroc SLS Lil' Augie Build

I haven't done a build thread in a very long time due to career responsibilities, but I think I have time to squeeze in something extra special: the newly released, Semroc Large Size Lil' Augie #KA-38.

Randy Boadway himself told me about the advent of this kit when I visited eRockets last month. Now the kit is available.

Hmm, the name itself, (Semroc Large Size Lil' Augie) is kind of an oxymoron--sort of like "jumbo shrimp", "military intelligence", "terribly pleased", or "accordion music" (et. al.)

Anyway, it should be fun!

All parts are present and accounted for. The pre-cut adhesive foil heat shields are a nice touch--as are the heavy walled body tubes!

Going to HAVE to get one of these !
Been waiting for an interesting kit that uses 29mm Estes F15 booster engines.

Then you should order soon. I believe it's a limited run.

I'll continue the build after I return from Houston, TX (a.k.a. "The Furnace".)

It's more of a steam or pressure cooker with all that humidity.

Default Leaving Houston!!

I'm finally leaving Houston (a.k.a. "The Reactor"). I must have sweated off 10 pounds fixing machinery in that metal fab and weld shop!

The heat and humidity was reminiscent of southern India--but with (just slightly) better drivers.
