Wasn't that thing just some plastic bracket that clipped onto the top of a big drycell battery? IIRC, it used the weight of the battery to provide a "stable" base for the launcher, and you just stuck the launch rod through some holes molded into the bracket.

Seems like duct tape would do about the same job.

Those used 6 volt batteries, so are you sure this is what you want?

I have a un-opened Estes Proton Torpedo launch set from 1977 if you are interested.
