I am working up a set of decals for the original Estes trident, and I can't find what seems to be correct scale information.

To make sure my set will fit correctly does anyone have an original ?
And would you be willing to take a measurement for me?

The easiest would be measure one of the long red Stripes with windows. If I have that I can verify my set is correct!

Thanks in advance.

Wish I could help you out, but my trident is so old, it didn't come with decals (I built it back in 1973/74). The instructions simply told you to put a strip of scotch tape on a pane of glass, spray paint it red and cut your "decals" out of that. :rolleyes:

Mark,

I have a completed model and a spare decal set!

PM sent.

Here's mine at NARAM 43 with Vern.
