Hi,

I’m new on this forum and indeed to the hobby. I use this opportunity to say hello to everyone here.

I’m scratch building Starchaser Thunderstar. The information in the internet about the rocket is very thin and I can’t find a good description of logos and text stencilled on its surface.
Does anyone have a good set of pictures or a description of either the real rocket paint schema or the Estes’s scale model decals?

Regards,
JNUK

I suspect you'll be making your own decals for this (or you could get Gordon at Excelsior to make you a set). To that end I found a couple of sources. The You Tube link has a corperate animation with a number of good shots of the markings. A number of screen captures could prove useful.

Thanks Troy,

I saw these pictures and videos. It's a bit difficult to use them, but if i'm not able to find anything else, it'll be the last resort. Would be nice to find a scan of Estes's decals. It'll simplify the process.
