Question Estes Mars Lander Internal Ring

Maybe someone here can assist me.

I just acquired an original Estes Mars Lander kit.

Unfortunately it is missing one of the two Internal Rings Part #RT-99D.



Does anyone have such a ring lying around that they could part with?

BTW, the same ring is also used in the Estes Star Trek Enterprise Kit #1275.

Thanks,

Leo don't do it!! Don't Ebay it!! YOU MUST BUILD IT!! Come to the light!

At least I assume that is why you need an original mint condition internal ring. I mean it wouldn't be important if you had a non-Estes part on the inside of the rocket, if you were GONNA BUILD IT!!

Well ... you see, I'm a rocket weirdo

My kits have to be in their original form. Even my Estes clones are only made with original Estes parts.

Case in point: If the original kit came with the simpler older engine hook then the same type has be used even though the newer engine hook might be the better choice.

I really don't know why but it makes me feel a lot better Maybe it's a principal thing

I have no plans to sell the Mars Lander on Ebay and since I'm building the excellent Semroc Mars Lander I feel no need to build the Estes kit. I just want it mint and complete

I know the man only from his works. I re-browse his website every few weeks to see his kit list, his acquisitions and HIS UNBELIEVABLE FLEET, and I know why he wants an original. He is persuing an admirable quest, self-satisfaction. I applaud his efforts (and I'm glad I'm more easily self-satisfied.)

I'm going back to his site to admire it again; I'll try to fight off the lust and pavlovian response.

Bob

P.S. If he ever sells, I hope he gives us a crack at them first!!!!

Leo,

I got a few Star Trek kits in the garage (five I think) but they're the anniversary editions. Will they work?
