    Here's a kit that I greatly wish I had the opportunity to pick up back in the day... Still do. The Estes SKY-HI (1365):

    I almost hate releasing this sim, as it'll likely drive up demand for the few kits out there, but Damn... it's too sexy just to sit on my computer.

    OK, the tricks played for this one... It has 24 fins... Yup!!! 24. Because every fin has a decal, and the decals are mirrored, I needed to double the fins. However, without the decals on one side, it'd look... well... weird. So, the balsa fins don't have decals, and the air fins have been offset to display the decals properly. I've attached the air fins to PBTs for easy deletion to allow for flight performance simulations.

    Instructions, fins and decals came from JimZ's site.

    Ok Hojo fans... I'm going to release this unfinished sim of the Estes Honest John (1919), perhaps it'll shake something I need loose.

    Since it's unfinished, the image is also unfinished. Here's the rub... No decals. It's done other than that. I need a scan (with a ruler) or a clear photograph (along with some indication of scale) of the markings for this kit so that I can fake it... A stencil font shouldn't be to hard to acceptably reproduce (at least "good enough for government use").

    Coming soon to a space below will be the Estes Honest John (7240), and when it gets here, the Estes Maxi Brute Honest John (Thanks Les!!!)

    In a strange coincidence, this post number (482) also has ties to my experience as a Weapons Systems Specialist (AFSC 46250)... (Nuke'm till they Glow, let the Army shoot'm in the dark).

    These sims are dedicated to lowga
