    At $400 I don't think you will see it on any Black Sat. sale

    What he said...:facepalm: At $400.00, I bet Ken is practically selling them at cost now... Better get your name on one now, before the price goes up...:point:

    I sure hope he's not selling them at cost. He won't be around long selling items at cost.

    This is what it's turned into... A once a year sale at "no margin."

    Ken's offering a new product at an ABSOLUTE STEAL. Buy now, don't wait!

    Ken, you sucked me in on this one. I'll take one. You probably still have my CC info from order the weekend before last. If not text me and I'll get to you. Nice looking rocket and good project for Balls next year :)

    Ken indicated that he thought mine would ship by COB today, but I have not yet received any tracking or indication that it has. My kit was modified slightly -- no slots, booster cut in two sections, and extra coupler (for zipperless construction). I thought they were going to make mine last.

    Yes. But please contact Ken directly with questions. Remember he doesn't check here very often. Plus he buried his father Wednesday.

    Hi Jim,
    Thanks for the information. Yes, I had read about his father's passing and didn't want to ask him until after the holiday about the progress of the kits. Figured I would ask here if any of the kits had shipped and would have a better idea of their progress. I had heard from him prior to his fathers passing and it sounded like he was waiting on Curtis to give him shipping confirmation.
    Thanks again.
    Kevin

    I called Ken Monday and we played phone tag. He left me a message that said he was trying to get in touch with Curtis and that he would let me know when my kit was going to ship. I haven't heard anything further.
