    Looks like there's a Technical Manual that has been produced as well...

    I think that technical manual has been around for quite a while.

    Then why is it in the new products section of the website, and that I have no memory of seeing it anywhere?

    Please don't take this as being snarky... take it as I've had 3 hours of sleep after a hard day of work and miserably hot and humid temperatures, and all the stress of trying to get ready to return to the USA, and fix my computer (keyboard's F'd)(I'm using my USB connected external keyboard now).

    No idea, but ( for instance ) you could have ordered #2819 from the '95/96 catalog, pg. 59.

    Maybe they updated it some more again?

    I'll have to look into that. However, I'm on a backup computer as I'm having difficulties with my primary computer (keyboard won't type the letters below querty, and several of the numbers). I've been told it'll take 2-3 days to get it back... Oh JOY!!! :rolleyes:

    Looks like Estes is not only bringing back the print catalog, but also a few old models like the lil Joe, and one of my favorites the Explorer Aquarius... Was skeptical at first but looks like Estes new ownership is legit.

    Also there's a heartfelt forward by Ellis Langford in the beginning of the catalog, So far he looks like a real champion for the hobby.

    The inside rear cover of the catalog shows the Apollo 11 Saturn V again. They discontinued that last summer, so I wonder if the plan is to re-resurrect it again? That page says something about a limited-edition kit with an added bonus.

    Would make sense as December will mark the 50th anniversary of Apollo 8...

    They are mainly focusing on the 50th anniversary of Apollo XI.
