Hello Everyone,

Please forgive me if I posted this in the wrong category.

It's that time of year again!

"What models does the rocket community want in a Scale / Sport Scale Mid Power (E - G 24 mm and 29 mm) around 3-4 ft. tall"

Here is a challenge.

I would like to create a database of requested kits. (Market research)

I would like to ask a few questions: (Please answer all the questions in your responses please!)

List your top 5-10 Scale models.

1. How much detail? (The Launch Pad versus Madcow versus Public Missiles versus Testors).
2. Fiberglass ($$) or standard paper tubing ($)
3. Scale data packets available with photos (nominal up-charge).
4. Limited Hi-Detail Runs (20-50 Kits, Decals) or conventional runs (General outline / maybe decals)

At the end of September, I'll post a spreadsheet for the rocket community to view and manufacturers to see.

If I get at least 100 responses to this thread, I'll randomly pick 2 respondents at the end of September for a Madcow / North Coast kit (Under $200).

So please respond.

That reminds me, I need to write the Smithsonian another letter.
