I had mine for years one of those thing that went into the parents crawlspace when I joined the Marine Corps in 78 and my dad got rid of in the 90s when they moved to a retirement community
I remember he called me nad asked "Do you want any of your old stuff from under the house?" I was still on active duty and getting ready to PCS to Pearl Harbor som I told him no sell it at your garage sale. Wish I could change that.
somebody in Colorado Springs Colorado got all my stuff for cheap😒

I have orbited the earth with John Glenn, walked on the moon with Neil Armstrong, landed on Mars, seen Jupiter and Saturn and explored the realm of deep space all thanks to Model rocketry.

I went into my files and pulled out my Vol. 11, No. 1 January 1971 issue of Estes Model Rocket news.

Attached are a few pictures. It appears I used some of the coupons for a rocket order back then.

Default 4 great kits!


Great post!

Demon, Bandit, SkyDart, and Mark II all on one page!

Sure wish I'd remembered the Follow Apollo...must have been a bit out of the loop at the time.
