I have had two of these kits (The Estes OOP Loadstar #1760) and I have lost both of the rockets upper stages. All that is left are two boosters. I am looking for one more kit. I know I can scratch build the upper stage but I would like an original. Anybody know where I can get one? Thanks nukemmcssret :D

here are plans and patterns for the rocket:

The Loadstar was a rebadged and new decals Warp II released mostly in bulk packaging.

Not sure about decal scans, or source of the clear tubing.

I have an unbuilt WARP II missing the payload section, so if anyone has a spare :)

The larger size of fluorescent tube protectors are close to BT-60 in size. They can usually be found at Home Depot or Lowes in eight and sometimes four foot lengths.

Mercifully, that wasn't something I ever heard. Knowing how sub bubbas are, I can imagine the lyrics in the "..." are not meant for sensitive ears.

I bought the tube protector they work. I could only find the eight foot length. So there is plenty.

I'm sitting here snickering to myself contemplating what a Loadstar would look like with an 8 foot long payload section. Snrk. I'm gonna go fire up Rocksim.
