We have backed off from the cc: kits. We get most of our complaints about them. Many hobby stores don't want them because some customers do not want to download the instructions. We still get emails about the "missing" instructions. The other complaint is that there is not enough detail to build the kit. Someone said the online instructions were "not up to Semroc's usual high standards!" This was about Vern's Space Plane instructions.

It may be because all three of our cc: kits are boost gliders; early boost gliders that were not great by today's standards, but all historically significant.

We do have some of our later instructions online as pdf files. Mars Lander and Saturn 1B are examples. I want to put all our instuctions online, but it takes so long to do it. Anyone interested in converting 50 or so MS Publisher files to PDF?

ROTFL!

Actually, Bob, if Carl sticks with his usual 175% standard for SLS upscales, it would most likely use LT-125 and LT-150 tubing, and measure just over 45 inches long.

--But that's just my extrapolation.

Bob KNOWS that. He is just nudging me to hurry up and get around to making a mandrel to slot ST-20 tubes!

You do have the SLS concept down pretty good!

Carl,

I've downloaded the trial version of Adobe so I've got 29 days to do it if you want to send me the files....50 divided by 29.....That's about two a day

I think he was busy packing my orders.....no, that's Sheryl.

I'm sure they probably get pretty busy there. I'm using the trail version to combine some of my other files into PDFs. But the size of the file doesn't change much so maybe I'm doing something wrong
