Default Estes Army Hawk (2031)

Does anyone have the original plans for the Estes Army Hawk (2031)[1990-1992]. Also looking for decals for same rocket as I'm thinking of building a clone.

I have an original in a sealed bag.

I would be willing to part with it.

The bag is kind of dirty. I don't remember when I got this one. I have had it a while.

If you want it, I would like to open it and make a scan of the decals first.

Maybe even scan the instructions and fins first.

I also found a built version...no idea where that one came from! but it's painted in a rainbow pattern.

No! I didn't do that!

Thanks, That saves me opening the kit.

Now, Leo...let me see if I understand something?

You Googled the Estes Army Hawk and found your own web site?

Cool, I guess.

Probably easier than trying to remember all the stuff you have.

Anyway...

I have the Army Hawk decals drawn, on my web site and ready to print.

Just click, "ADD TO CART".

Later today I'll dig up the model I have and measure the fins. I'll post the fin pattern here.

OK, here is the fin pattern with a BOM, pretty simple.

You can make it with easily available parts.

and of course I have the decals.

Now the kit package says "Semi Scale Model of Hawk Missile System".

After looking at the built model I have I was comparing it to the real Army Hawk...

The fins are way way off
The nose cone isn't even close
The body is way too long and out of proportion
There is no tail cone like the real Army Hawk has
No conduits...no detail at all
The decal...I'm not sure where those came from

So yea...Semi-Scale

The Launch Pad has a very true to scale model of this missile. that is if you want scale,
I have had the Estes version for a long time, first thing that I did was to convert to D
engine power. I still fly the Army Hawk on less than perfect day's when I risk loosing
my newer or better rockets. Also fly's great on a C 11 motor.
