Yes I know. Sometimes you get lucky. I'm currently building the Estes LJII, just looking for a larger version.

It was based on a BT101. So not sure of actual scale 1/38.5?? Just a little larger than the Estes/Centuri model.

I see on the Rocket Review of this kit, Chan states the 3rd flight had severe rodd-whip.
Would have really liked to see that flight.

I did. My BSG Laser Torpedo was next to it on the pad. Little Joe farted all over it.

Yes, thatís the scale.

I am trying to get all the parts together.

I have gathered most of the parts for ten kits.

The biggest issue I have is the capsule. I make all the parts by hand so it is a bit tedious. Hopefully by the end of summer.
