I thought fiction threads were supposed to go in the Watering Hole?
It must have high sales? My guess is bring back the original Fat Boy.
Does the Centuri Orion count (since the corporate paths cross)? Otherwise, the Skywinder.
Sure would love to see some nice Russian rockets, like 1/100 Scale N1
A plastic RTF N-1 as a companion to the RTF Saturn V was discussed by the Estes folks at the NARAM forum so maybe, someday, we might see one.
Once upon a time, my fantasy reissues were the 1/70 scale Saturn IB, Orbital Transport, and Mars Lander. Since then they've all had either re-issues or Semroc clones. Other great kits are pretty cloneable--I've already done a BT-60 scaleup of the Astron Constellation using a Sprint XL kit and some clear BT-60 from Apogee (though if they added injection-molded fin-tip pods, that would be great). So I think now my suggestion would be the LTV Scout.
Fat boy is a cool rocket. I launch mine on an Estes D12
I flew my 20-year old Fat Boy on an E20-7W a few weeks ago. Back in the day, guys used to cram much larger motors into this rocket. It would be a popular rocket if it was reissued.
FATBOY and I would like a FATBOY Pro or Max.
I'm intrigued. What would a PRO or MAX Fat Boy look like?
I would love to see the Gemini Titan so I could build the Gemini- MOL and the X-20 Dynasoar launcher.
ESTES or even another company should market a large scale shuttle stack. Now that would be really cool!! I mean I know there would be a market for it.
Something completely different...
I would like to see Estes reprint their design contest winners.
Now that’s an interesting idea!
I second that!
