Good thing I happen to see your post the other day because I sold off a bunch of my collection today and kept the Cato for you on the "in case" along with my Old FSI's that I'm going to auction.

I'll start looking for a box to ship it in and see if I can get a ballpark on the mailing cost. Price? He!! I don't know. Tell me what u think is fair. Glad I can hook u up. Email me with your address.

If you lived here in Jersey I'd hand it to you and say buy me a shot and a beer.

I'm pretty sure I've got this one still. I'll dig around in the basement and PM you.

Here's the bail out. There's some damage to the base of the tube and a little melting to the fincan. But I have an extra fincan I can include that has less damage, has been flown but is in good shape. The fincan unlocks to allow the motor to slip in and slip out. How does $4 plus $4.95 shipping sound? See the next post for more pictures for a stain on the tube. Let me know if your'e interested. Darth Vader *is* included. :)

I'm always on "the hunt" and I do live in NJ. Let me know here or email me direct: garmtn@gmail.com.
Also, why is it the hobby shops aren't stocking "parts" only kits??

If you're talking to me I'm listing lots of old goodies here: http://www.rocketshoppe.com/cgi-bin/auction.pl

It's a great place to deal with I've found. I'm a parts scrounger myself so in selling these kits I'm making sure to try and get for them at least what the nose cones are worth. Hasn't always worked out, but... ;-)

Sorry but I just saw your post.

If you are interested I have some old FSI engines that I don't want the hassle of shipping. (4 F's an E and a D.) Other than some select pieces that I plan on auctioning I sold off most of the items for sale at a local rocket meet.
