    Astro 1 Model Rocket Kit

    Semroc Astro 1 Model Rocket Kit

    Semroc's Astro 1 kit is a clone of the Centuri kit. As described in the Centuri 1969 catalog, the Astro 1 is "an excellent starting kit for the beginning rocketeer. Its high performance design assures you excellent, high altitude flights every time. Upon ignition, ASTRO-1 zooms hundreds of feet into the sky."

    The original Astro-1 was one of the first model rocket kits to incorporate a "Quick-Change" engine mount that became a standard in model rocketry. Designed to be an excellent beginner’s kit, the Astro-1 became the first rocket for thousands of new model rocketeers. The “rake-back” fins were so different that many were built incorrectly with the fins glued on to resemble the Estes Alpha.

    Point Model Rocket Kit

    Semroc Point Model Rocket Kit

    The Amazing Point is Semroc's re-issue of the classic Centuri kit from 1969. Centuri designed the Point to show that a model rocket did not have to look like a rocket to fly. Basically a cone shape, it demonstrated principles of stability and showed that the rocket could be used as its own parachute. The Semroc Point is a faithful recreation of the original. It uses a precision shaped balsa nose cone. Laser-cut balsa fins are included instead of the original blank sheet with a fin pattern sheet. The canopy is now self-adhesive and a high gloss full color shroud is provided so there is very little left to paint. An elastic cord is provided instead of the original rubber shock cord.
