Default WANTED !: Estes K-21 Gemini Titan or PDR clone

Hello everyone-

I'm looking for an Estes K-21 Gemini-Titan unopened kit, prefer Green-Face-Card Skill-Level Packaging. Would go up to $200 on this, depending on condition.

This is the 1967-1973 produced BT-70 based kit, NOT the late 80's BT-60 kit.

Also looking for an opened one for a "builder"; would go to $125 for an opened complete but undamaged kit.


I'm also interested in the PD Rocketry clone of this kit, unopened or opened. ($100 unopened, $75 opened)

These prices are based on COMPLETE, and ALL parts UNDAMAGED. Might be interested in kits of other condition, but need full disclosure of contents.

Let me know....I don't do paypal anymore, Money Orders only.

If you have one you are willing to part with, please send me an IM.

You should be able to get the parts to build your own, BMS has the balsa Gemini nose cone. Print the instructions from JimZ and go from there. The skin wraps from John Pursley should assist greatly on the finishing aspects.

I agree I could piece it together but don't really want to.
Already have a spare GT cone, and plan on the Pursley wraps.
Just want a no-hassle kit.

I had the same opinion regarding the Estes classic model of the Thor Agena - B, passed up the chance to get the PDRocketry model and decided to gather the parts (mostly from SEMROC) plus I had spare body tubes in my stash. It wasn't all that difficult once I had all the components on hand. Just followed a copy of the Estes instruction sheet printed from the JimZ website. Fellow rocketeer Kurt Schachner offered to make the clear fin assembly for me; did a real professional job on it and to this day (some 10 years after I built and have flown the model many times) has given me no issues whatsoever.

That's a really nice looking Thor Agena-B.
How do the clear find stay attached ?

Just use a little Scotch tape to hold it in place. Pic below shows a better close up.

Yes, originals; the Saturn SA-5 (on the left) is the Dr. Zooch model, and the Saturn - V is the original Estes K-36 model, but modified to fly with five engine cluster (D12 core, four C6 outboards).
