A couple of things I just noticed:
- On the Estes web site there is a Little Joe II plastic parts set: http://www.estesrockets.com/rockets…astic-parts-set and a Mercury Redstone capsule plastic parts set: http://www.estesrockets.com/rockets…e-plastic-parts. Great for those who didn’t do such a great job on the tower on the first try, or whose capsule didn’t survive re-entry. But also great for anyone wanting to, for instance, scratch build a Marcury Little Joe.
- Just 6 years ago there were only 7 Skill Level 3–5 kits in the catalog (in fact they were all Skill Level 3). This year there are 27! That’s a trend I like.
