I want to do an upscale of my first model rocket kit that I built over 20 years ago! The Estes Marauder (Kit # 1922) and I need to know two things. How long is the BT-55 (BT-55KA) main airframe tube and the BT-60 (BT-60J) payload tube.
I have the Estes Body Tube List on my Ye Olde Rocket Shoppe site under Building Tips. That's the same place you can find the Estes Nose Cone List and Estes Fin Can list.Thanks . I knew I saw a list of body tube lengths somewhere but could not remember where . Can't wait for my LOC order to come
While I can't help you with a parts list, because you didn't say what scale you want to upscale it to, I can help you with a .ork file that uses measurements taken from a scan of the fin pattern, and not guesstimates found on rocketreviews...Someone have a good parts list for an upscale Marauder? I loved my Estes Marauder and it's had the most flights of any rocket I've had. When I saw an upscale here: https://stickershock23.com/product/estes-marauder/
I couldn't help but want a big version.
True. I haven't done an upscale before so sorry about that. I've sent a note to Stickershock to see if they have details on the one in that pic. So maybe that will turn up something. Otherwise I guess I'll figure out some sort of scale. I've downloaded Openrocket. I'll play in there and see what I come up with.While I can't help you with a parts list, because you didn't say what scale you want to upscale it to, I can help you with a .ork file that uses measurements taken from a scan of the fin pattern, and not guesstimates found on rocketreviews...
If I were to try to upscale one, I'd seriously think about buying an Estes Ventris (from their Pro Series II line), and using it for parts. It should have everything you need except the fins. It might not be a true upscale, but it'd be an easy project.This the the one I saw that looks cool.
