Default Little Joe II

Title: Little Joe II

Kit number: KS-3

Background Information brief: The Estes Little Joe II was released in 1968 as a companion to the Saturn 1B. It shared the same 1/70 scale Apollo Capsule. The Little Joe II was Estes #K-30 and was introduced with a price of $2.75.
The Retro-ReproTM Little Joe II is a faithful reproduc- tion of the original. It uses laser-cut balsa fin ribs and smooth finished balsa parts for ease of construction. Heavy embossed wraps are included like the original with a paint-ready glossy surface. Two 12” two-color parachutes are supplied along with a Kevlar® shock cord mount.
There were five actual Little Joe II launches. This model is closest in paint scheme to A-001, the second flight, that was launched at White Sands, NM on May 13, 1964.

Designer: Based on Saturn 1B by Gene Street

Release Date: 10/16/2006

In Production: 2006-2014



Requested attachments:

Fin patterns (200 dpi grayscale PDF)

Decal scan (600 dpi color PDF)

I built this kit in 2008. I did scan the following for myself but not with a ruler on the bed nor at the requested resolution of 600 dpi for the decal. I figure that this is better than nothing for now.

I also have included the scans for the Apollo Capsule kit KS-2 which I believe was included with the little Joe. The one I built looked like crap, so for display I put an Apogee Plastic Capsule on top.
I flew it once and unfortunately a tree ate it and the Semroc Capsule.

Thank you so much! I am so sorry you lost it. It appears erockets still has the parts for the booster if you wanted to replace it:https://www.erockets.biz/search.php...section=product
