Hi, I would really like to build this rocket. I think it's someting different and kind of cool. I was a teenager when he tried this. Kind of a joke. Maybe that's where FOX got it's ideas for all the reality show. Anyway I need to know if anybody has a parts list for this. JimZ's page has the plans but there doesn't seem to part list. He has the decals so that shouldn't be a problem in finishing it. Any help would be great.

Thanks - Scott

Semroc will have the ST13 tube, and perhaps the motor mount stuff too. Give me a minute on the nose cone.

I made a nose cone for mine out of balsa. The original was plastic. The model has "rear" ejection I'd scrap that idea and go with normal nose cone ejection.

I actually made it for my son-in-law who is an Evil Knevil fan.

Do a search here. Marty made a BT-80 upscale one a few years back.

Don't forget to add nose weight!

Speaking of Moldin Oldies, I just noticed that they have the PNC-102. This is the cone for the Estes No. 1378 Firecat "anti-tank missle." And yes, this Estes rocket uses the Centuri ST-1010 body tube as well.

I just sent a decal scan of mine to Excelsior so that Fred can make fresh ones for me (the ones in my kit shredded when I dipped them in water.)

Since the nose cone is available, and the tube is available from Semroc or JonRocket, I think I'll go ahead and send the plans to RocketShoppe. Just a "heads up" if anyone is interested.
