Green Skill-Level Hang Tag Kit(s)
 
I'm trying to even out my meager Estes collection of skill-level hang tag bagged kits. I have a few yellow, pink, and blue kits, and one red kit. Seeking green kit(s), sealed.

I think these are all that were produced. I understand the relative scarcity and value between these kits, OT probably the most common, GT the rarest.

Honest John
Gemini-Titan
Mars Snooper
Mars Snooper II
Nighthawk
Orbital Transport
SkyDart
Trident

Contact me via PM, thanks!

Here's a HoJo with a ratty hang tag. Looks like silverfish got to it.

I have a far smaller hoard than many on the forum, but most are valuable.
I have a green-tag Nighthawk and have seen those far less than the Gemini Titan actually.
The Honest John and Orbital Transport kits are very common.

Yeah, that Nighthawk does not come up on ebay very often at all.

I have a sealed green GT. I know I should clone it and sell it but I want to open it and build it. I wanted one and couldn't afford one in '73. It's for the nostalgia kick ... so there will be one less on the planet.

I don't think I have EVER seen a green skill-level packaged Nighthawk on ebay, but have seen the Gemini Titan.
Both were in that packaging only in 1973 I believe.
In 1974 they were gone.
The non skill-level packaging is far more common.
I think there were two Nighthawks on ebay recently.

There are VERY FEW kits I would trade my Nighthawk for.
A boxed, sealed Enerjet Athena is one.

I had no idea that the green skill level Nighthawk was that rare.. I've got two of them. Plus a 68 in just a sealed bag. I'm a sucker for boost gliders...

The only Estes Nighthawk that I've seen recently on Ebay is an open kit being sold by goodrocks...
