    Someone on the Facebook group said "ESTT7294". I still can't get the Vapor kit; I get a round around from the employees, so I decided to wait a bit longer. But no less than 2 guys on the FB group offered to pick me up one and ship it to me, which was simply awesome.

    The SKU # for the Vapor is ESTT7294. And it was me who answered the question on FB.

    Just finished putting primer on this rocket.
    It is a nice looking rocket. Still not sure how I am going to paint it

    No Vapors or Olympus's at my HL yet. I did pick up an Epic II the other day and built it. Fun kit. Simple yet satisfying. I papered the fins and added a Kevlar shock cord, otherwise it was built stock. It's in primer now, but will get the face card paint job, I like the black/blue/white fade color scheme.

    If anyone is looking for anything in particular and doesn't have a Hobby Lobby nearby let me know. I'd be happy to pick them up and ship them to you. Not sure what they have in stock but I'm on my way there right now so I can find out. LOL

    A follow up on my earlier post.

    The Vapor and Olympus kits I ordered at my 'local' Hobby Lobby were ready as promised. :)

    Hmmm, SKU is not as clear as the pic I took. Sorry.

    This is a test, only a test... I took a screenshot of the blown up pic. Let's see if that works better. Screenshot_20191122-130215_Gallery.jpg

    That's the Estes sku alright but I am pretty sure the HL sku is 1550938.

    Anybody have an assembled Vapor showing the fins. When I opened the package the fins dont really look like the picture to me.
    Maybe it's just my idea of what they should look like. Does this seem correct? 20191122_125813.jpeg

    That certainly looks like you'd get the fin shape shown on the face card. Grain parallel to the leading edge. Long edge is the root.

    Looks like the fins are surface mount? Not thru the wall?

    I thought the same thing when I saw your pic, but yes, the long grain would be the leading edge.

    I just use the supplied fin cut outs as a template and make my own 1/8th thick plywood fins with thru the wall construction on every Estes kit. Very strong.
    Also replace all the recovery parts with real. Fly them with big motors a small chute and a JLCR.

    Not sure if that was meant as a reply to my inquiry or not? But that is Estes SKU for an ESAM 58.
    I’m hoping someone can and will supply Hobby Lobby’s SKU for an OLYMPUS Kit.
    Thanks so much!

    Don’t be confused. A retailers Stock Keeping Unit typically has no relationship to the manufacturers part number. And Hobby Lobby’s SKU for the Vapor is likely different from Hobbytown’s or ACSupply or Belleville or ... I don’t know what HL’s SKU for the Vapor is but I’m guessing Bruiser has it right in post #70

    So it's not the numbers below the bar code? Would it be the number on the peg?

    Right, but a UPC and its code should be the same.

    Right. But, UPC <—> SKU is like apples <—> oranges.

    Hobby Lobby will special order/rain check the item(s) for you, but require their SKU number which is not Estes part number above the UPC. Posts #70 and #82 indicate the SKUs you’ll need for Vapor and Olympus respectively.
