    Original fat boy

    Does anybody have the specs on the original Fat Boy that was around in the 90s? (tube size, length, nose cone, mmt, etc...) It was always my dream to have one as a kid but I don't believe they make them anymore... just micro and mini sizes. Also does anybody make a high power kit version of the...

    Multi-Roc 36 hour build

    Get an email from my friend on Tuesday afternoon saying "hey... the weekend looks good, lets go launch Saturday." Our field isn't huge, but plenty big enough for a D-motor. I start digging around my stuff. Still packed in the box after the last launch. I shoot an email back, "sounds good. I've...

    Estes Xtreme Build Thread

    I picked up two of these kits from AC Supply, and I figured I'd do a quick build thread for this new rocket so others can see what the kit is like. There's nothing too special about this kit, it's basically a Hi-Flier, but for once I'm going to (mostly) build this one stock! I'll probably...

    Estes Ghost Chaser

    Wanted to share some praise for the Estes Ghost Chaser Rocket. This is a relatively new kit from Estes, designed for first-time flyers. It features snap-together construction and quick assembly. Pictures don't really do it justice. In person, it's a very attractive rocket and larger than you...

    Wanted Looking for Estes 1919 Honest John Kit or Built

    Looking for the Estes 1919 Honest John rocket which was sold from 1984-1988. 18mm with parachute recovery. One of the few times that a company chose to model the M50 version of this famous missile, rather than the more popular M31 with the larger fins. Would prefer an unbuilt kit but would...

    Estes - Doorknob PSII (#9720) Gallery

    Just finished this Estes Doorknob. This was my first experience with Tamiya masking tape. It definitely lives up to the hype! It was a fun build and I can't wait to launch it. (It sucks that all Estes 29mm engines are on back order. I'll have to buy a casing,)

    Estes Pro Series II Doorknob Build

    Hi everyone, I’m a recent BAR, and I’ve been expanding my new fleet over the last few months. So far, I’ve only launched small low power rockets in local parks, but I’m slowly moving my way up the chain of engine sizes with the hope of making it to a club launch sometime in the near future to...

    Best Way to Remove Waterslide Decals

    Found this Estes Citation Patriot at a flea market. In good shape--needing only a chute, new shock cord, and paint. Never had to remove waterslide decals before, but it seems warranted in this case. What's the best way to remove these decals without damaging the body tube? Thought I'd remove...

    Estes (Astron) Cherokee-D: Through the years 1970-1983

    I've been doing some research on this, one of my favorite rockets, for quite a while. And I've compiled the information from the catalogs in which it appeared (1970-1983). Also included is some info from the instructions I've sourced. The Astron Cherokee-D was introduced in 1970, the year...
