Default Estes 1375 - Scorpius

It's another great, scifi design from Estes. When Estes does this well, they do it very well. This is such a case. It uses 18mm power and recovers under a chute. It is new and unopened. It can be yours.

I am asking $75

This kit is offered for sale in an effort to liquidate my collection of kits and is being offered via cross postings on The Rocketry Forum and Ye Olde Rocket Forum. The price indicated is what I have determined by looking for evidence of similar sales but, admittedly, might reflect a poor judgement on my part. I'm just doing the best that I can. The price does NOT include shipping. Interested persons are invited to contact me via PM and I will calculate the shipping. Payment is expected by means of PayPal, Zelle or Venmo. My intention is to make shipments twice per week after confirming receipt of funds. I will try to give the most accurate descriptions I am able to provide and will happily answer any specific questions either by PM or within the post thread.

I'm trying to be fair and honor a "first come, first serve" precedence when dealing with inquiries. That invovles juggling messages I see while at work at the hospital coming from both TRF and YORF. That started out easy but got more complicated as there were more and more rockets listed. I made some mistakes and for that I am sorry.

I also don't mind holding rockets as you wait for more to become available. This does help with shipping costs and nobody has been more horrified than I over the current postal rates. That said, I am going to have to change one thing. I am only going to set aside "sold" rockets. I tried it the other way and a few times I was left in the lurch when others were interested in a rocket. That was only a mild annoyance. What I cannot tolerate is the mistakes that I made in selling something that had been promised. With my faulty memory and hectic schedule, the only way to prevent this when so many rockets are up for sale (with hundreds more to come) is to strictly segregate the sold stuff from the unsold stuff. A hold with an intent to buy now gets 24 hours, barring exigent circumstances, after that, it's back on the market.

Would you happen to have a Manta Bomber or Attack Craft Orion kits ?
I'm interested in both of those.

I had a Manta Bomber but built it. I don't recall having the other but it's possible. I just don't remember what's in some of those boxes. After hurricane Harvey, lots got thrown out and all of it was re-boxed. I'm not the one who did the packing. Some of my congregation attended to that while I was doing chaplaincy with evacuees in San Antonio.

I wish I could remember better but I don't.

If you come across either, I'm interested.

If you have not shipped the kit yet, please do me a huge favor?

Measure the length of the dowel rods and launch lugs.

Also estimate the thickness of the fin sheet.

Thanks in advance.

I'm sorry I didn't get this message in time. I would have been glad to do that.

I have the Morerockets Scorpius kit. Will the measurements from that suffice?
