Just released is the Retro-Repro™ Sprite (http://www.semroc.com/Store/scripts/RocketKits.asp?SKU=KV-86)™ which is based on the classic design by Gene Street from 1964 that used the original "Shorty" engines. Using tumble recovery, it is quick to get up for a small field demo. Includes 4 empty Shorty casings to enable popular "T" mini engines to be used to relive the golden days. Until the end of the Memorial Day weekend, we will include one free Sprite in your orders over $40.00.

The Sprite is excellent. Thanks for kitting that, Carl! I just ordered two.

Whoa! My favorite rocket from the old days! I just need to get one of those kits, a bottle of green and a bottle of white butyrate dope, and I'll be all set. This is a truly inspired Retro-Repro.
Question: how does the motor mount design deal with the difference in diameter between modern mini motors and the old Series III motors?

Question: how does the motor mount design deal with the difference in diameter between modern mini motors and the old Series III motors?We supply empty casings the same size as the original Shorties to fit the "T" engines inside.
