    Sorry for opening up this thread again, but wanted to know if this kit can still be purchased. Is Hanger 11 still around?

    I think they're still around I don't think they're into rocketry any longer. They still have a website but nothing related to rocketry. No new kits and I doubt you'll find any on the open market.

    I have one and built it to the point of attaching the side shrouds. Its not an over-complex build but it is really different than anything else I've built. It's nearly all bolt-together. You can glue/epoxy stuff but it isn't required.

    WOW thats pretty cool. Now this is the 4" version right? I wonder why they didn't do the same type of build process for the 6"

    3in and 4in were bolt together using 8-32 bolts and lot of them. Not sure about the 6in version.

    In case you X-15 fans are interested and haven't heard, Steve Neill over at SNG Aero Rocketry has a couple of brand new X-15 kits, one model rocket size and one for 29mm motors (pre-order phase). He has teased about a larger one, so maybe...

    Yes I've seen those kits. He does a really nice job and they look great! I was considering one, but really want a larger scale like a 4" kit

    He's a good guy and his kits look great what I've seen so far in pictures.
