Default Estes 0873 - Hawkeye

Here is a nice looking mini kit from Estes. It has the look of a missile with some nice decals and more that just a tube with fins. It has a 13mm mount and, for the life of me, I don't recall how it recovers and don't find direct evidence from the photos. I am going to guess at streamer. It is new and unopened.

I am asking $40

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.

I used to tell Mom, "...I want to fly rockets when I grow up!"

She said, "Make up your mind, you can't do both!"

I thought it would be. I couldn't tell from my photos and the kit and I are separated by a few dozen miles at the moment.

No streamer, break apart recovery.
Instructions here: http://www.spacemodeling.org/jimz/estes/est0873.pdf
Same thing with the Micromaxx version from Rocketship Games.
I suppose you could add a streamer if you want to, but not necessary.

Humm, maybe I just decided to add one to mine then.
