"Another By-Gone Great"
johncpo41 (www.hobbiesinabarn)
This was one of the first rockets that I built from an original issued Estes kit. I remember the kit as being very easy to assemble and that because the balsa wood was still somewhat rough back in those days I had to sand each fin. Other slight issues were just minor as the whole rocket looked great and flew great as well. I finished mine in the recommended glossy white with a few of the decals placed according to the instructions. I would recommend this to any rocket fan, regardless of experience in building. A fun kit for all.

"Nice small field semi-scale bird"
wallyum (Ft. Thomas, KY)
I love the fact that this is mini-engined power and the relative ease of construction. I built mine stock except for the addition of Kevlar in the recovery system. Looks great in olive drab, but should come with a US ARMY decal instead of US MILITARY, although that's not the fault of Estes. I bought a second one that I'm planning to build as an 18mm powered bird, just because they're cheap and readily available. I'm guessing that one will need extra nose weight.

 
"Nice Scale Kit"
FinBurner (Brandonbacn@outlook.com)
This is a nice scale kit that can be made a little more detailed with the following tips: 1. Carefully sand the fins to the profile in step E3. 2. Paint the model flat olive drab (OD). Once it dries, coat it with a clear gloss coat and let that dry before applying the decals. This will help your decals hide. Once the decals are dry, give it a coat of flat clear (dullcote) to give it a more military look.

 
"Mini Honest John Upgrades"
champfluff
Great rocket, but the original Honest John, from Estes, is made with a BT-55 and uses 2 launch lugs, with 2 launch lug spacers, to prevent wind cocking, an inch from both ends of the body tube. Split your launch lug and launch lug spacer in halve evenly, making 2 shorter launch lugs, along with the spacers to match the launch lugs and align so they do not bind on the launch rod, for a straighter launch in light wind.

Comments

  • Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
  • For your safety and enjoyment, always follow the NAR Model Rocketr Safety Code while participating in any model rocketry activities.
