This Thread will discribe and show my current "Second Fleet" of Flyable LPR & MPR rockets. These re-sized photos may be a bit grainy due to this enlargment. but I hope will be useful in showing how construction and finishing techniques change as the years and decades go along. Many of the original "first release" of these model are still flying today with some internal repairs to shockcords and recovery systems. Model 000: Stretch Phamtom Rocket: I modified this Estes Demonstration model to fly with an internal protective replacable tracing vellum sleeve allowed me to fly this "visible rocket" at many Grade and middle School demonstrations without damaging the clear Polyethylene body tube & styrene nose cone. Model 001: Original Estes 1:100th Saturn-V: This is one of the surviving rockets from my first fleet. Completed 05-17-1970 and flown up until 1999 is still flyable but retired with 139 flights matching our club Section Number during the 40th anniversary of the Apollo-11 moon landing celebration at Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland. Model 002: Original Estes 1:70th Saturn-1b: Another first fleet surviver, She is still flown on occasion today on a cluster of 4 C6-3 motors. Model 003c: Estes Goblin: was the 3rd first fleet surviver which I flew until she had to be rebuilt after 50some flights on D13 & D12-5 & 7's between 1972 and 2008. What a great flying model returning on 2" x 120" orange crepe paper streamers from out of sight many times. Model 003d: Estes Goblin: Is my complete rebuild, using as many of the original parts as possible from Goblin #3. Had to replace all four fins as the bottom areas were burned badly by the launch blast blowback. Model 004: Original Estes 1: 42nd Scale Mercury-Redstone: Saved from first fleet this rocket is still flyable today. In fact is was recently flown as part of the opening cerimony at Naram-50. Model 005: Original Estes Cononial Viper: from 04-26-1979: Model 006: Original Estes Cobra-1500 04-26-1979.
