I can bet that was one of the three Side Kicks I built for Estes. That one has the revised decals with a darker orange.
I can make out some subtle details in the models on the back table that tell me which ones I built.
When Estes releases the new kits for sale, the builds will be featured on my blog.

Those Yellow colored parts are 3D printed Parts. No sense going through all the trouble of creating a test vacuum formed part when you can just print the part. Some of the Yellow parts are injection molded and some are vacuum formed.

Those images were taken at the Estes Board Meeting this past Weekend, which is why Gleda is not in the pictures.

Glad to know about the Saturn 1B. Iíve got one thatís built, needs paint. I sent another as a gift to a rocket friend for Christmas. Looks like I could restock this year ó but I still have one more oldie. Found at Ace Hardware years ago for $39, high on the shelf in the Kitchen Dept.
