Default Moonraker

Anyone else interested in the Centuri Moonraker? The low power/long delay 18x70mm motors would allow flights that that remain visible. The fiber fins could be laser cut. And it has two piece maple leaf recovery for something less ordinary. I've already submitted my vote on the Semroc classics page.

+1 for the Century Space Shuttle.

The Beta was my first two stage rocket. It was ok, I suppose. I don't have any strong urges to build another though.

We MIGHT even be able to move more Firefly's since it too was designed around the Shorty's.

The first engine machine will produce 10mm, 13mm, (15mm), and 18mm up to 2.75" long. The second machine will produce 18mm, 21mm, and 24mm up to 4.5" long. Unfortunately, 27mm and 29mm engines will have to be done on a third, much more expensive and bulkier machine.

Depending on how well the engines from the first machine sell will determine the future of the second machine. Same for the third machine.

I vote for the Centuri Defender.
I have cloned this one, but I think more than a few of these would sell as kits.

Make that +2 for the Centuri Space Shuttle (would also like to see it as an SLS kit).

How about the old Mercury Redstone or Atlas? It looks like either (or both) would fit in well with the Semroc Saturn 1B.

(ps. what does SLS stand for?)

Default Just a Thought

In keeping with the Retro aspect of releases, one idea might be a theme being the release year. You can release retro kits as voted popular for any specific year. Almost any kit can fit as a release and you get to decide the order of release.

As for Kits, the classics page tells the story, even if it may have had some "loading".

Deep in my subconscious, I have this desire to reproduce one full Centuri Catalog, which year - undecided but early 70's likely. I'll have to go page by page or random, and I'll probably die of old age before completion. But it is a plan!

Bob
