Estes Photon Probe Build, Background
I have two kits, one original from the 1990s and the second from 2009 when Estes started their "Classic Series. The older kit was #2043, the reissue kit is #3026.
Both kits will be built at the same time, I'll be making comparisons between the two. There are some differences.
I always thought this was a sister kit to the Photon Disruptor that came out in 1976. This original Photon Disruptor was BT-50 based Maybe it's the black and white decor with the that orange (or pink or purple) center section. Both kits from the early 1990s were BT-55 based and about the same height.
