Hey there, after a trip to my parents house I found my estes helio-copter original rocket in my parents basement after close to 15 years of dust collecting dust. Broken fins, body tube pretty beat up, etc... Well for sentimental purposes I would like to refurbish it, clean it up, and repaint it. But I need to find new decals!

Does anyone have a set anywhere or possibly a kit laying around? I would LOVE to find one somewhere but bein out of production for years and years not sure howgood of a chance I have

Any help would be great!

Does anyone have a scan of the decals?

I haven't found the plans.

I just got a scan and it's all drawn but I do need the size to check my work.

Could you measure the stripe, please?

Did the decals go around the model?

If so I just need the tube size or type...BT-50 or BT-55.

The decals are finished I just need to verify the size.

OK, thanks, that's a BT-56.

Going out of town today but will finish and post it on my site tonight.

That stupid little star, who would have thought that would be the hard part.
BT-55, BT-56. Whatever it takes.;)
