    This is another of the "must haves" from when I was a kid. Sadly, I never did have.

    Nice job.

    Estes Long Tom (#3016) Basic Information.

    [​IMG] Estes Industries

    Long Tom

    #3016

    Introduced: 2010
    Final Year:
    Designer:

    Type: Sport, 2 Stage
    Motor Mount: 1x18mm/1x18mm
    Recovery: Tumble/Parachute
    Stages: 2
    Length: 33.25"
    Diameter: 1.33"
    Span:
    Weight: 1.2 oz

    Mfg. Description: A sleek 2-stage sport rocket standing over 33 inches tall, the Long Tom is one mighty impressive rocket. This rocket can be flown as a single stage or 2-stage and can reach heights of 1100 amazing feet.

    The Long Tom flies on standard engines and a bright 18 inch parachute brings him back to earth. Prepare him for re-launch with a new Estes engine, wadding, an igniter and igniter plug.

    A high quality wood nose cone, laser cut wood fins and waterslide decals mimic the original kit. Any changes Estes made only enhanced this classic kit. (Estes 2011 Web Ad)

    My replacement for the one the went ballistic...

    The paint scheme was inspired by this thread, the only waterslide decal used was the Estes logo

    Very nice!

    Oddly, the only decal I didn't put on was the Estes logo (well, that and the stripes—I painted them on). Just got some Centuri decals. One of which will go on the Long Tom in the appropriate spot.

    I do appreciate Estes re-making this kit for the time they did.

    Heres mine - she is based solely on the box art so is finsihed pretty much as Estes show on their artwork and in the instructions.
