18.00 Long with OD of 1.490 Fuel Tanks
15.90 Long with OD of 5.76 Main Body Tube
3.863 Long with OD of 3.46 Command Module Tube

I would then make a nice detailed plastic fin that looks something like the image below, but unfortunately Im currently not working on such a project.




Don't forget about the Little Joe I. That would be something different and I don't believe it has ever done by Estes.

John,

Looks like you have given at least a casual thought to the 1B.

I just ordered two of the new Honest Johns, and looking forward to the LJII. Thanks again for giving me some much needed projects to do while I'm engaged in all my wife's house remodeling work!

I typically only go out 4 digits on my slide rule, but it should be close enough ...

By the way, George, your drawings on your page are absolutely amazing. Thanks for the info.
