Default More new Estes kits coming?

Interesting post on Chris Michielssen’s blog about two possible upcoming Estes rockets: a bring back and a new “sci-fi” design. Some fascinating speculation going on about the bring back...

John Boren had posted over on the NAR Facebook page that he had flown two new kit ideas.

One was a SciFy type model while the other was a re-issue with a two color paint scheme (Decal colors do not count).

Hmmm...

Actually the color of the decals do count for the total colors used on the model.

Two colors, with one of the colors being the decals. That means any rocket that was black and white, red and white, blue and white, black and yellow, red and yellow, etc. That is a whole lot of guesses.

It would narrow it down a bit if we knew if it was a scale model...

(that's called "fishing for hints")

Well that narrows it down a bit. The fun is in guessing - until the kit comes out of course!
