Here's the trick to finding lengths of body tubes of old Estes kits. First we find the plans for the kit in question on either JimZ http://www.dars.org/jimz/rp00.htm or on my site, Ye Olde Rocket Plans http://www.oldrocketplans.com. Look for the part # on the plans for the tubes in question. Then we go to the Ninfinger site where he has an Estes Body Tube chart, http://www.ninfinger.org/~sven/rockets/body_tubes.html.

For the Gemini-Titan BT-70 it is 17.5" in length. For the T-A BT-52, it is 3.938" in length. The BT-60 tube is 7.0" in length.

For nose cone information go to my Ye Olde Rocket Shoppe site, http://www.rocketshoppe.com and look on the Building Tips page.
