Semroc Corp.

While looking for an Estes Goblin which I asked about in another thread I found this company. Anybody have any history with buying from them?

Semroc is an outstanding company. I can give them an unqualified recommendation.

You can't see it, but I'm drooling awaiting their release of a 1/100 SaturnV kit.

Maybe it's best I can't.


Soooooo, anyhow after perusing their web catalog I notice they have many parts listed for out of production kits. Can you buy/do they sell/ these parts and build said obsolete model??

Yes, Semroc "reprints" lots of out of production kits. Sometimes there are just fins available. Sometimes it is all parts minus the instructions (which are available from a couple of online archives) and sometimes it is an entire kit with instructions. They also sell original kits and upscales of old kits.

Agreed... Semroc has the quickest shipping and best customer service that I have even seen.

There is a great deal of respect and admiration for this company and the owners.

Recently, the owner underwent hospitalization and both these forums were completely supportive of the owner and the company.

Talk about loyalty!

Simroc Rocs! Fast packing and Shipping. Ordered last Friday night at 11PM and got the box today (Monday). From NC to Cali. Nice collection of small balsa parts.
