I think it was a BT-70. And the colors were orange, black and silver, not white. ;) (My brother-in-law said I had too much white in my rockets, and I took him to heart on scratch builds/upscales.)...

Thanks, Jeff. I thought I had another one ready to go, with parts and plans gathered, but I can't think of which one at the moment. My rocketry time has been decimated by my recent shift change. ...

The booster standoffs look to be 5/16" in width, but it's a tight spot. The lug standoffs are 1/4". It's right here with me. What kind of pics do you need?

Bruce, I have an original kit at home. I can check the details tonight when I get home. This is one of those birds that needed 24mm power. I've been toying with the idea of converting mine.

I cloned a Lambda 8, Phobos, Theta 37 and Zeus recently. They're simple designs, but always get a "What?" when they're announced at the pads. Perfect B6-4 Field flights on an A8-3. Got any more...

That's the one I got. Both times. ;) My first one was bought on clearance when Hobby Lobby was divesting themselves of everything but Estes stuff. I think I wound up with the Quest starter set and...

Never thought about the possibility of those being Shuttle or Titan fins. Makes sense.
Since most of them are in decent shape I've just been regluing fins and calling them good. The Pathfinder went...

The final rocket of the assortment. I think this is a product of an early Estes Designers Special. Needs a new pod cone and shock cord, but I like the design. Kind of reminds me of an FSI...

I'm sure I'm not the only one who saw this eBay listing, but I think there were only two bids made, so I'm not sure anyone saw much of interest in it. It arrived yesterday, and the birds I could...

I picked up an oddball bunch of nose cones about a month ago via eBay. The one that I was most excited about was an RDC V-Max cone, which basically looks like a nose cone with a golf tee grafted...

I'm sure they are. It was an actual kit, not a clone. Looking forward to unearthing the rest of the kit so I can see if I actually did it correctly. So far, that is. ;)
