I have the following kits:

Cox Saturn 1B

Honest John

Does anyone know when these kits were released originally?

I also know that the above kits were reissued in the 90's. Does anyone know when Cox sold them exactly?

Thanks :)

I somehow get the feeling the Cox kits weren't very popular :(

I belive ESTES reissue the COX rockets in 1991 after ESTES bought COX out.

Leo,

Look for the thread titled "Cox Rockets" from earlier this year.

There's quite a bit of information, pictures and links to information about Cox rockets.

If you could see me right now you'd see a REAL BIG RED face :eek:

Why did I not use the search button i ask myself.

Thanks a million for the pointer!

I guess your a COX man :D

I've noticed the nozzle (that holds the engine) from the Honest John come in different flavours. Can you confirm that?

I'm going to be real bold and ask a question:

I'm missing a cox parachute (don't know the size) and a metal hook for my Honest John.
Do you happen to know where I can find them? I'll pay :)

Thanks a million.

The original 1970's release of the Honest John had a grey colored nozzle retainer.

The 1990 re-issue had black colored ones.

I don't know of any Cox parachutes for sale. You might contact Estes and ask them. Same for the shock cord anchors. :(
