JeffyJeeps pictures ARE Beautiful aren't they! Yes, the one you found on E-bay is exactly what I am looking for as well.

Default Something odd

What is REALLY weird is even when I look on Estes website for plans the kit isn't even listed there! How weird is that!

There is a huge whole in the Estes Instructions on some of the most best kits. I don't know how they decide which one's to publish and which one's not to. Although, it seams from what I've looked at so far it has a lot to do if they still make parts. Like plastic nose cones and other assemblies.
But there is always Jim Z's!!!
He has a wealth of instructions and is always adding more.

Thank you! Be careful when (if) you fly your Nightwing. If it's not weighted properly it WILL go horizontal.

JeffyJeep's models are inspiring! (I am sooooooo not worthy...)

So does anyone have a plan set/parts list they can share? Or have I missed something (which would not be unusual for moi)?

Old Thread, but I am building one of these. Any chance you have a pic of the underside paint of the Black and Red scheme? Can't find a single picture showing the underside design.
