Default Mid Power Body tubes ?

I have a couple of "The Launch Pad" kits I received in a trade. The previous owner did not pack them very well and the tubes are distorted/ creased. Does anyone know of a vendor who carries compatible replacement tubes ? The sizes I an looking for - 2.6" & 1.6"

Thank you

eRockets.com can probably help. Also Balsa Machining Service.

I believe that The Launch Pad kits uses standard Estes tubes. I built the Hellfire and I do not remember anything special about the tube. So your tubes are likely BT-60 and BT- 80. BMS, eRockets, Uncle Mike's Rocket Shack all carry those tubes. The first two have a huge tube selection beyond just Estes sizes. For eRockets, look under Parts from Semroc in the menu, then you'll see all kinds of parts categories.

Thank you for the suggestions. I had emailed TLP numerous times with no reply's. They just as well remove their contact us page.
I found replacements through Aerospace Specialty Products. Andy was lightning fast on the shipping and the items were packaged carefully to withstand the worst the Postal Service delivers.
