    Go bang,
    I'm on the way to walmart in a few LOL
    ...I gave up on waiting for the new kits, and ordered them from Hobbylinc...when I calculated the price of all four kits at Walmart +tax ,against the price at Hobbylinc plus shipping...It only cost 30 cents extra for all four kits.. and they shipped out the next day ..I can't wait!

    the one that I'm Super anxious to have is the Outlander...It should be out real soon!

    My wife went into Port Huron, about 18 miles down the road, to get some essentials.

    She came home with some groceries and stuff...you know...big deal, Right?

    She tells me she stopped at Wall-Mart and picked me up something...

    A GBU-24 PAVEWAY III

    A PYTHON 4 ASRAAM

    A BLU-97B CLUSTER BOMB

    AND...AN EXTRA BULLPUP 12B...just for fun

    Tottaly unsolicited!!! She thought I'd like them!!

    Should I stay married to her or what!!??

    Hobby Express has them in bags hanging with the other kits right now for $9.98. Your local hobby shop might have them too.

    I used to live on the north end of town, off of Sandlake Rd. Plenty of fields to launch in. Lemme guess, they tore down the drive in movie theatre and built apartments.

    LOL!

    Actually the "Lakeshore Drive-In" is still an empty field.

    Full of trees but the screen and speaker stands are gone.

    Nobody has ever come up with a good reason why they closed it.

    Sandman,

    I'm with the Maniac...(boy that sounds weird ;) ) She's a keeper...on the lighter side, I just picked up the GBU yesterday on the way home from the launch. I can't wait to finish the BLU-97B Cluster Bomb Model and get started on it.

    So I can't even fly my Wal-Mart "The Dude" there when I visit. (just to bring this on topic:rolleyes: ) That used to be a great place to fly small stuff during the morning hours of summer vacation. 10 points to whoever could get their chute to hang on a speaker pole.

    I'm going to check the Wallymart in Georgetown to see if they have any engines on sale. That store only has about four rockets :mad: but they do have the new A10-PT :D for about $2 a pack cheaper than HobbyTown. HT is outrageous!
