Jim,
Glad to see the Cranbery Twp shop finally got off their butts! I took in a packaged Tres and Rhino to show them in January (or maybe late December?) and left my catalog. I had talked to them about you before, but they never seemed to move. I was in there last week and they seem to be getting low already. Sold out of Tres, Ricter Recker, Acme, etc. Looking forward to buying without shipping!

Doug,

Nope haven't heard from them. Been too busy to be chasing hobby shops though I will be assigning the job of "sales rep" to Kathy and she will be hitting them, one at a time, across the country starting in the next couple of months. :)

We're very pleased with the turnout of retailers, but when they all order in the same week... LOL

Jim, around these parts Hobby Lobby is the only dealer to carry a significant line of rocket kits. They have just about every Estes kit and lots of Centuri kits. I know the big retail chains are a pain in the a__ to get into but it sure would be nice to see Fliskits hanging there!

I got my first 2 FlisKits (Tres and A.C.M.E. Spitfire) about a month before my local vendor (What's Up Hobbies) got theirs for sale, and I had my kits built for the first weekend they were on sale at a launch. It was almost like we had it planned! New kits for sale... see one get launched today!

It can be tough. Not so much a PITA, more of a set of logistics and finding the time to do it. I know the proceedure and have to find the time to make the right contacts and get the ball rolling. If anyone knows someone from HL corporate and would like to introduce me to them or visa versa, it would help get the ball rolling.

We are well prepared to supply a large chain hobby shop.
