From the side panel engine info this looks like the perfect rocket for the Estes E12 - high enough for a safe recovery but low enough to see the whole flight. Congrats on your acquisition!

That's what I should have done--but I just couldn't wait.

I'm working on a vintage Estes LJII in 1/100 scale. With the 1B, the LJII, the Skylab, and the SV I already have (all in 1/100 scale) I hope to have an epic same scale Saturn/Apollo fleet next year!

Same here!

(AND I have my original Estes 1/70 built . . . well, as well built as something I started as a 13 year old could be built.)
