Also, Rocket Doctor is Ken Montayne (sp).

Dave Meyers has popped up on the Estes Model Rockets group on Facebook and claims basically all the most recent winged stuff up to 2010 (i.e. the RC rocket gliders). I'll see if he'll come over and join.

Larry has had a pretty long and sweeping hobby career.

I'm sure there's probably some kits that were handled at various times by multiple people, or maybe he dealt with a major modificatiion or repackaging? Like Renger claims "Alpha Mark II".

I believe the Estes K-6 is the Astron Ranger, not some "Hawk" thing.

I got the AMROCS, Estes, and Space Age Industries mixed up. It's a K-6 AMROCS.

Fixed it.

Maybe was Alpha II. But that was more Bob Cannon's project. It does make one wonder what Larry was thinking.....
