I am looking for the plans for the Estes/NCR SA 14 Archer, NCR# 3510. I am a bit confused on what I have seen on the web, with regards to the SA 14 Archer and the SA 14 Archer XL and which is which. Does someone know the difference?
Hi,Thank you - I'm looking at a NCR 3510 SA 14 Archer kit that doesn't have the instructions. I can figure out how the centering rings are placed, but I don't think the balsa fin stock is die-cut, so I would need the template for those.
OK Boss, here is some items to chew on that might help with the 4" Archer 14 by Estes which was around 57.8" Long as compared to the very old pre-estes model by NCR that may have been the 62" normally referred to, even by NCR Estes. I included a copy of the NCR Estes data sheet that shows the rocket was 57.8" long and not 62" when made under NCR Estes. I don't have the measurements for the decal sheets, you may be able to work this out or just get with Sticker Shock
If you have Rocsim, I included to files, one from online and one I worked up some time ago. I can tell you that the forward fins are made from 1/4" balsa.
I'm not a expert on this model but I don't believe the newer 2.6" Archer 14 is a true down scale of the 4" model.
Hope this helps!
