Default Or where, oh where.......

Anybody have any ideas on where I can find an Estes Galactic Pirates Pirate ship? I have the "good guys" ship, the Excalibur, which I am in the process of building now, and I would like the other ship. I used to have the pirate ship, but after 21 years in the Navy and MORE than one move.... it has "flown the coop" so to speak. Soooooo, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, and by the way, anyone who wants scans of the Excalibur's decal sheet, instructions and templates, give me a yell, I'd love to share the wealth

Take care, be safe, and keep 'em flyin'

Gunner

I tried to get one off Ebay but they just got too expensive for building. I cloned it from JimZ's site. Now I have both these kits in flying condition.

There is a company that is cloning them but some on this site have issues with him using copyrighted artwork in his drawings and etc.
I'm not going to provide the site due to the fact of all the bickering back and forth on this site it will create.
Suffice it to say if you research, you can find a kit for under $25.

At the risk of something, here it is:

Look under their clones. They actually have nice reproductions.

I have several of their kits including the one to which you refer, and they are great.
I think he stepped on some toes about using original artwork without permission.
Not my battle.

Someone here did a really cool third entry to the Galactic Pirates / Excalibur line, a sleek white ship for a lady space knight. The "Lady Guenivere" or something like that.

It would be fun to build all three.
