Quest Pipsqueak Background
Scigs30 does beautiful builds and posts them on The Rocketry Forum.
These are his work and pictures.
A recent blog comment from David Carllucy prompted me to do a comparison of the two kits. On the left is the Quest Pipsqueak, on the right the Quest Novia.
Both are basically the same kit, the Novia is simply a longer 20mm body tube and slightly different nose cone. Both models use the same fins.
The Quest Pipsqueak was a "carry over" from the original MPC 15mm diameter Pipsqueak. It was the smallest of the 13mm MPC Minijet line. The MPC Pipsqueak fins look a little different.
When Quest started out (using much of the MPC parts) the Pipsqueak became a 20mm model.
This back page ad from the old Model Rocketry magazine showed the size of the original Pipsqueak.
