Another GREAT choice by those at the helm of Estes !

Any chance of getting the Nike-Ajax too, John ?

BTW, the Nike-X can be converted to gap staging. We cut real holes where the decal holes were located. It'll need nose weight with the small 2nd stage fins.

My son's gap staged one is on the left, my cloned one is on the right.

I've been looking into the Ajax. IF it comes back it won't be the same as it was.
