I found the one in post 8, it was tricky because there are two versions of this rocket, the simple roll pattern is the first, 80s version. It is the Estes Reliant and the scan is right here...
Original Reliant

The one in post 7 is Voyager II, the fin tip decals are tucked underneath:

Voyager II

Only the decal left in post 6 is a mystery .

The Recruiter has one of the coolest nose cones ever! (I'm not really sure why, but I like it so much I've turned several upscales of it on my lathe ...)

I've still got my original Recruiter, and mated to get one cheat on eBay a few years ago.

Jeffyjeep, I seem to recall you being a Recruiter fan-boy as well.
