Although it's relatively new, I believe the Sprite is the 6th one.

Okay, all of my other guesses were way off. This one probably will be too.

I guessing the ThunderBee.

Based on the fact that it's a nice bit of rocket for a low price and perhaps it does well in bulk sales.

1. Boid
2. Laser-X
3. Saturn 1B
4. Golden Scout
5. Mars Lander

My choice for the sixth kit to sell over 1,000 is:

ASTRO 1

I picked this one for a couple of reasons -
I would think it was a first model for many, and BARs look to rebuild their first kit.
I also checked the production years of some remaining repro models.
The Astro 1 and Javelin were both released in 2004. More years in production would mean more sales, right?

Length in production may have some impact in overall sales, but I know two of the first they brought out were the SLS Scorpion and SLS Jaguar and doubt either is anywhere near the 1000 mark. Those were the first two Semroc kits I bought but got them off ebay, not direct. I think I may have more flights on my Scorpion than any rocket in my fleet. Flies well on anything from a B6-4 to a E9-8.

Ok, I only had 3 of the correct kits in my first post, will change my submission if there is still time:

1. Boid
2. Laser-X
3. Saturn 1B
4. Mars Lander
5. Golden Scout
6. Orbital Transport


Also think the 6th could be the Rawhide or maybe the Thunderbee, but will go with the OT as a very popular sci fi kit - maybe I should order a few more to push it up

By quantity sold:
1. Boid
2. Saturn 1B
3. Laser-X
4. Golden Scout
5. Mars Lander
6. Swift

Sorry that there was no winner this time. It was still the Swift (by itself). The Saturn 1B passed the Laser-X in total sales.

Other guesses were #8, #12, #13, #14, #15, #16 and #19

No one guessed #7. It was a surprise to me that it was so high.

So, now you've piqued my curiousity. What was #7? The top 10?

Okay—no problem. While I was trying to make an educated guess (that may be an oxymoron for me), it was fun to do.
