    Was thinking building some Current U.S. missiles like Tomahawk, Harpoon, Hellfire, Minuteman, Trident
    Does anyone know if there are any kits out there in low-mid power range?
    Or is everyone scratch building.

    Looks like he's been trying to sell the business for some time now.
    Maybe someone can take over like the new owners at Fliskits and start producing the kits again.
    Change the name to SMM ( Sam's Military Models).:D

    I remember 60 years ago manufacturers like Revell and Monogram made plastic missile and rockets all the time. You could find them in the hobby shop all the time. I did a Google on them about an hour ago and it seems like they don't care about missiles and rockets anymore. Of course, 60 years ago the Cold War was in full swing and the U.S. Defense industry was building and replacing missile and rockets as reported in the news all the time. On occasion you can see one of those old plastic missile or rocket kits on ebay.

    ,

    I sent a message from the Contacts page and got a prompt response.
    The business is for sale.
    The website stays up to show potential buyers the product mix.
    no new kits are being produced (for some time actually).
    I'm not a potential buyer. :)
