If you have it I'll take it... within reason course. I don't care which material the nose cone is.

Thanks,
Tom

Someone on Facebox just posted a haul from a hobby store in Massachusetts. He had two Mini Maxes, and said that the store had six or seven more.

I just dug the one I have out. It’s the balsa nose cone version—production date 51 09.

I still have 4 Mini Max kits. One is definitely earmarked for my 4 year-old grand daughter. She saw an Alpha III in my basement shop, and asked me if she could take it home. It has an “Easter Egg” dipped paint job (hydro-dipped), in pink, blue, and purple, done with her mother almost 30 years ago.

I have a set of sandman’s Der Pink Max decals for one of the Mini Maxes (they are Hello Kitty themed). Two more will go for another Double Mini Max (pictured) or maybe a Triple. I like the Mini Max kits with balsa nose cones. They can be sanded to make the nose cone more rounded like the “60AH” cone on the original DRM.

Lee,

I’m going to make a Der Big Mini Max out of one of mine.

Good idea! I have the parts to make a 3” DBRM (new version), and it’s tempting to lengthen the tube to make it an upscale of the old DBRM. Estes tubes are not long enough, but BMS sells a 34” long 3” tube (1” longer than the required 33”).

I hate using couplers, heck ya I’d buy the tube from BMS and go from there. I’d like to make a Mega Der Big Red Max also sometime, like the one Louie Berlin made.
