I have the following old and OOP kits for sale. Mostly Estes, some MRC. If you don't like the price, make an offer. Must sell, fast.

Buyer pays shipping and insurance, if needed. I can only accept cash or USPS money order (no one else!). All sales final, OK? American dollars. Price listed after kit name.

Kits sold AS IS. I tried to be honest in describing those with damage. Many kits have price stickers, store stickers or prices written on them. Ask questions first!

Just to let folks know. The Fin Alignment Guide and the Mini-Bertha are both gone now. Actually, the F.A.G. sold about 10 minutes after I posted this! Wow. Thanks for the responses.

Sorry, Karl. I should have been clear. Those are my requested prices. Ones with question marks are suggestions. My bad!

Could you measure the tube lengths on that RamJet model? I'm dying to upscale one and the plans don't have the reference-able part numbers.

As a suggestion, you may want to "edit" your original listing and add a bold SOLD tag next to each item as they are gone. It'd be easier to follow and simple enough to see all on one list. Just a friendly suggestion is all. :) Hmmm....RamJet....

Good point and thanks, but now I just killed your daydream! ;-( Sorry.

Hey Fore Check! The outer tubes (two) are 5 1/4 inches long; the inner (motor) tube is 12 inches.

I was saving that one to build one day, as it's snazzy and a half, but money troubles have descended. So, my pain is your gain!

I'm surprised no one's asked after the unopened kits yet. You could buy those, resell them on eBay and show a profit. I just don't have the time or inclination right now.

Could you clarify that Unopened kit #0898 Explorer?

Estes kit #0898 is listed as the Mini-Cobra. Perhaps it's an "explorer series" rocket? ( :confused: )

As the guys on the Dodge Ram Hemi commercials say: "Sweet!

That will make a fine D powered upscale with a BT55 central tube. Let's see... two pieces of BT70 9.5" long ought to be close enough for those outer tubes......

Thanks!!!!!

Sigh...I'm getting old, dude. It is the MiniCobra. I'll change that.

But I did find another kit to add:
2008 Yellow Jacket (Opened but complete; slight crimp on end of one BT) -- 10
