I do know that we shipped of a bunch of them to the various NARAMs. Since I was back in Penrose minding the store while Vern, Bob Cannon and Norm Avery represented the company at the meets, I can only assume that we used them as free handouts.

Thanks Bill for clearing this up. I think Scott needs to add this to the Estes kit list so that yet another piece of Estes history is recorded. It would be interesting to see which DOM kits were actually packaged for distrubution.

Bob,

Were you the one that purchased this in the auction? I'll gladly add it to the list, I just need some details if you have any. Specifically, name of the kit (I'm assuming it's Double Trouble), model # of the kit and if anyone has any guesstimates as to when it was released. Maybe a guess going by the type of hang tag used.

I should point out that my birdie was a K-44 version, first offered as a free kit. The instructions were the design of the month plan, no face card. and a standard hang tag (now missing).

In addition to the "Double Trouble" the same seller is offering a Sealed/Same style Hang Tag DOM Scorpion as well (this is NOT the plastic finned early/mid 80's Scorpion).
If these kits are not legit DOM kits from Estes, WHERE would the hang-tags come from ????
