Default Quest Nike-Smoke

Looking for a Quest Nike-Smoke, or any kit of similar size that has a precision fin can. Please reply here or PM me if you have one for sale or can direct me to a source. Thanks!

Joe

Scott, I found an older Estes Astrocam and took the fin unit off that. I'll use it for my project, but if I'm not happy with the results, I wouldn't mind buying one of your fin cans (if you're willing to part with one).

I wouldn't have waved 'em in your face like that if I wasn't willing to part with one

Go to those guys for a Quest fin can. But if you want to try better see this:

Those Quest fin cans are terrible if you want scale appearance- the fins are woefully thin and inaccurate.

Wow! That guy makes beautiful stuff! But a little steep at almost 30 bucks for the fin can!
