It appears to be the same, HOWEVER, I don't remember the one from a few years ago as having plastic launch lugs. I DO know that I didn't use them if it did. Also, this one is boxed. The last one was bagged.

Thanks all for the comments, photos, and feedback on this latest Nike offering.

Just for info for those who may not have received the email, Estes is having a 15% off sale through July 4th (off their entire website, with some exclusions they say). That would take about $10 off this $69.99 kit.

Per my post, #19, it is the same - including the molded plastic lugs. Attached is an annotated screenshot of the original instructions

Ah so! Must be I just didn't use them. Instead, I used 1/4" paper LL's and stand offs. The attached photo is of the one I built several years ago.

I just ordered both size Smokes, an Antar and a Great Goblin.

Well, I hemmed and hawed about the PSII Nike Smoke and you pushed me over the edge Scott (er, excuse me, Scor)! But, just the PSII Nike. No other items in the cart. Gosh, been a while since I bought a ?new? kit!

I kinda wanted one when the first version was released (whenever that was), but just never got one. After it was discontinued it was going for pretty decent bucks on eBay, so I never picked one up there either.

Problem solved now! Happy 4th everyone!

Earl

It looks like AC Supply has both of those.
