Hey, guys. I just picked up a free Estes Patriot. It's about 3" dia, and about ~40" long. It has a 4x24mm mount, and the owner said it used to us two motors and two "Smokers" that would be used to track it. The fins are two pieces of (Balsa?) that make a cross piece, paper covered to make tapered (wholly, from fore to mid, and mid to aft) 1/4" fins. Two are missing, and the paper is coming off of the others.
I was wondering when this is from, and if it is worth anything (New). If it is worth something originally, I will fix it up to where it is in like-new condition, original fin styles and all.
If not, I am going to take the fins off, replace them with 1/8 inch solid poplar, replace the NC (cracked on the shoulder), glass the tube, new recovery system, and add a 38mm MMT.
