    So in a bone head move, I dropped the Apollo Capsule off the top of my Saturn V (the new 50th anniversary kit). The LES Tower split along the glue joints. I have the capsule the, the two truss-work supports, and the Motor and Nozzle assembly. The ring that goes about 3/4 of the way up the truss-work is MIA. Like it bounced into the surrounding clutter, and I'll find it in 6 months. Does any one have an unbuilt kit and could take measurements so I could cut a new one out of something else?

    I'd buy the capsule kit direct from Estes but their $10 shipping doesn't make sense for a $7 capsule set.

    Thanks

    I found the piece!

    If anyone loses or damages the ring on the less the dimensions are 0.300 in Outside diameter with a 0.040 in circular cross section
