Now I'll have to buy two ! I flew my first two stage rocket since becoming a BAR and I'm hooked . A staged Nike-X is intriguing .

The Hobby Lobby in Flint Township, Mi carries all their normal Estes stuff still.
I buy all my Estes 29mm F motors there with the 40% off coupon...that puts the pricing right about where it's worth.
They discontinued carrying the F15-0 though, which stinks.

Had they wanted to, they could have made it a lot closer. I wonder if there were licensing issues in those days?

When I built this in the 70's I don't think I had any clue what prototype it may or may not have been modeled after, lacking the magic of Google Image search.


Note that the new Estes Nike-X has no "US ARMY", or the "skirting the trademark laws" replacement designation "US MILITARY". With the latter, at least you could cut out letters to form the word "ARMY".

I still contend the government has no right to restrict such usages. We The People paid for all this military hardware!

ABSOLUTELY...

That restriction was one of the stupidest things I ever heard of...

Just put an appropriate size and fonted decal with ALL the letters and let people put whatever they want on it...

I wonder if they kit a North Korean ICBM if Kim Jong Un will get a royalty?? LOL

Later! OL J R
