Thrustline Aerospace Star Hauler Plans
 
The link below will take you to the plans for the Star Hauler kit.

Each plan set also includes a RockSim file for the kit. That's a good thing since nowhere could I find a parts list of tubing type, length, etc. I'd appreciate it if someone with RockSim or OpenRocket will give me a hand by adding a reply to this post listing the parts type/size you extract from the RockSim file. If you could include the templates from the RockSim file I'd appreciate that as well.

Scott,

This is the top of the first page of “StarHauler.pdf” in that .zip.....looks like the parts are described here in Estes part terms. But the payload section in the picture is red tinted like I’ve seen on Quest kits.

Uh, yup. You'd have to ask John about that. I'm just posting what he sent me.
