Estes Equinox Background
The Centuri Scram - Jet was introduced in the 1973 Centuri catalog.
It featured off center fins and two BT-5 "jet" tubes underneath.
The newer Estes Equinox has a continuous fin over the top.
The Equinox also has added two small sub fins under the two jet tubes.
The D.O.M. plans are HERE
(This original version seems short but has two lead nose weights for stability.)
The Estes Equinox is really closer to the Centuri Scram Jet, but you can see some similarities.
This is an older production version that still had the stenciled U.S. NAVY decal on the side. The sub fins aren't in this picture.
Here's how the final production model looks.
The decals now say "EQUINOX"
