Dang, the offerings in LPR are coming out of the woodworks! The price on that Laser-X is VERY reasonable. I'd expect it to be a $13.95+ kit price. Very nice. I will have to evaluate this company's offerings. :D

LOL!

I've been waiting since NARAM for these.

He already gave me two sets of Laser cut fins for it!

Astronboy-

I ordered one Monday evening, and I got an email this afternoon (Tuesday) that it is shipping. I've never ordered from them before, but if their service is any indication, these guys are a class act. Looking forward to getting the kits I ordered.

Carl and his son Bruce are class guys, they had a booth across from us at NARAM 45.

He has a LOT of very inexpensive (boy is THAT an understatment) kits.

Where are those guys that "visit" people who don't post pictures? Cussler08 - resistance is futile. Post pics!

I just ordered the Little Hercules and Laser X. The Hercules will be cool converted to mini engines. A little easier to find than a Mosquito, but simple to build and launch.

I placed my order on Sunday, and received it in Upstate NY today. Not bad for Christmas-time shipping!!

I ordered a Laser X, and a Lil' Gerc, plus 4 of those nifty 12" 'chutes.

The kits feature cleanly cut white craft tube, very nice looking laser cut fins, and finely turned nosecones. The Laser X also has laser cut centering rings, very nice water slide decals, and clear instructions.

Both kits have super neat-o retro facecards. Please see my pic below:

Down to the prices this looks like nostalgic Century - Astron.

Very cool!

I got my Semroc order in two days. Very nicely packaged and the parts look good from this side of the plastic. Will post review after Santa delivers them.

Ordered mine of Tuesday, it came on Friday.

But the problem is...

The Lazer X is number 44 and the Rawhide is number 20...

Looks like I'll just have to make another order for ones that I can build...

I know what you mean. All of my first order were single digit kits. I just couldn't make myself open them, so I ordered more. So far I've built the Micron, Sky Hook and Lil Hustler.

I did not see the numbered card until both kits were opened. I will now be building Laser X #8

Received my Laser-X and Skyhook Saturday (in the snow!). Wow! I've got Laser-X #48. Love the little ID card with specs, production number, and original date of production. That will look great attached to a BMS rocket rack

I don't know why my order took so long. I'll blame the mail.

I'm curious, I purchased 2 Laser X kits and I got production #29 and #40:confused:

I would have thought #29 and #30.

I ordered early too. I would have expected single digits.

Sandman, your first order was received December 1 at 7:58 a.m. and mailed December 1 at 11:44a.m. via First Class Mail. The USPS estimated 3 days to your ZIP. Must be Christmas that has the mail bogged down. We will shift all orders to Priority until First Class times get better after the holidays.

We had no idea the Production # tags would be so popular, so we did not keep them in anything except rough order for shipment. We will be more sensitive in the future.

We are holding Production #1 through #5 of all kits back for the future and begin shipping #6. Our next release is the Hydra VII. #6 is promised to the SaveRocketryNOW winner, but #7 is reserved for sandman! for bringing all this to our attention.

And BTW our new Rocket Rack will have a place reserved for our Production # tags.

Carl,

Oh I wasn't complaining. The weather on the east coast probably had something to do with it too.

I don't want #7....I want #7 and #8...I want 2!

OK I'm greedy!

Ready when you are, Carl!

sandman

P.S. Carl, now don't be sending me #78 just to be funny! That's #7 and #8!
