Alien Space Probe

Just finished another scratch build. The Alien Space Probe. Estes produced this kit between 1990-1992.
Here is a picture from the catalog. The build was fun and it is quite a nice looking rocket. I hope to take it out on it’s first flight this weekend. If you would like to do this build the plans are available at JIMZ (PDF File).
Here is a picture of the parts

Centering rings and landing pods were cut from tough cardboard using the templates included in the plans. I used 3/16 dowels from the local Hardware store. Other parts are from Hobbylinc . Here is the finished rocket. A great new addition to my fleet.
