North Coast Rocketry is making a comeback with the release of several new rocket kits. ”First Editions” of these kits are currently offered on eBay. These are one-of-a-kind items used to check the final version of the released kit. Each “First Edition” kit comes with a signed certificate. Visit eBay for more information and to bid on the kits.
A seller on eBay is currently offering an Estes Pro Series “bundle” which includes the Impulse, Maxi Force, Patriot, Terrier/Sandhawk, and Jay Hawk Pro Series kits along with the Command Control Launch Controller and the Power Plex Pad.
As I browsed eBay looking for “weird, wacky, or way-cool” listings, I came across two kits which may be of interest to collectors and others. Both are offered by the same seller who seems to have discovered a stash of old Centuri Buck Rogers kits.
Centuri Buck Rogers Starfighter (5335) – In 1979, Centuri released three kits inspired by the TV show Buck Rogers. The Starfighter is the coolest of the bunch.
The other kit from the seller is the Centuri Buck Rogers Laser Lance. It’s a more typical looking rocket, but still an interesting addition for your collection.
