Estes Teros Upscale, Finished

Even though the US AIR FORCE decals aren't in the original white, the upscale captures the feel of the Estes kit.
The model is BIG and could be a good match for the Estes E9 and E12.

There is some transparency in the white block over the orange paint. It's not as noticeable with the second black decal over the top.
Even with the outside edges of the fins trimmed back they still seem large!
The ramjet nose cone was a major design feature of the Estes kit. The champagne flute nose cone isn't exact but close enough to the original profile.


  1. Cool looking rocket! What are the dimensions.

  2. Hi Jim.
    The Teros is close to a 2X upscale of the original Estes kit.
    The height is 25", diameter is 2" or the Quest 50mm tubing.
