So I am sitting here building my vintage Estes Nike X and the door bell rings. I answer the door and the UPS man delivers me this big box. I open it up and there rest my 17 new kits from Estes. Yes, I have decided to personally keep Estes in business so I am buying all there new kits. I know a lot of people were skeptical about the classics ever making it to the market, well I am living proof they are here. So now my dilemma is how do I build the entire 1979 catalog with all these new kits coming in? After some cold drinks and looking at the new packages, I came up with a solution. I will build a vintage kit while building a new kit at the same time. I see a lot of people on these forums with 5-10 rockets in different phases of construction so I should be able to handle two. I don't have my camera so the first build has to be the Magician. I wanted to start on the Alien Invader but that will be my next build after the Magician. I bought the Magician sometime ago with the Hornet, Photon Probe, and Satellite Interceptor, and that is where this picture is from.
