    It would be fun if they reissued the "Semi-Scale" kit they had out in 1969-71 or so.


    Which I think is roughly the same as the Peter Alway kit (now somewhat hard to find).

    The Dr. Zooch Sat. V is the same scale as the Estes semi scale but uses slightly larger than scale fins instead of the plastic fins on the Estes version. Also has more nose weight, and permanently attached engine bell nozzles.

    The Alway Sat. V was recently offered in a limited production run at BMS. Hopefully they'll offer it again prior to the anniversary.

    I've got an Alway Sat V that got caught up in a move when it was about half done, so it's now packed in a couple different cartons.

    I've seen the Zooch Sat V -- it's very good looking for a slightly smaller model than the Estes 2157.

    (Not to mention less expensive and less time-consuming to build.)
