  • Model: SEM KV-42

One of my favorite Centuri kits in the history of model rocketry was the Taurus. With lots of transitions, tubes, cones, and a spiffy paint job, it was a cool and futuristic bird. It is back to admire again as another fantastic "Retro-Repro" from our friends at Semroc! The original Centuri Taurus Fleet Ship was initially released in 1972. It was designed to look like an alien planetary cruiser from the far away planet of Taurus. A short science fiction history was provided with the kit. Using six plastic cones and reducers, the Taurus was one of the first entries taking advantage of the less expensive balsa replacements in the transition from balsa to plastic in the early 1970's. The Centuri Taurus was introduced as catalog #KB-3 and had an initial price of $2.75.

The Semroc Taurus(tm) is a modern recreation of the original. It uses all balsa parts instead of the plastic parts provided in the early model. Laser-cut balsa fins are included instead of the original die-cut parts. A slightly smaller chute is provided since the model is much lighter due to the use of balsa instead of plastic. A Kevlar cord is provided for better shock cord retention.
