Bummer. I guess folks that can't print decals or don't want to contact Estes can paint one fin a solid off color like the Goblin or Citation Patriot. It should still look good and satisfy our decal OCD at the same time.

Finished putting the decals on my Hob Lob Vapor today. Once I opened the kit, idk the fins are kind of small and the decals meh, so I made this upscale instead. My homemade decals are not so great but it was my last sheet of decal paper. The nose cone is not correct but I am really happy with it. Just have to add the retainer and future shine.

Default New egg lofter comparison

Here is my just-completed (and now twice flown shortly after this picture was taken) Olympus alongside my Green Eggs, which uses the same plastic parts (just molded in different colors).

Starter kits). Contains 1 ea. A8-3, B6-4 & C6-5.

The Rocket Science Starter Set, #005302 includes those three motors but I donít see the multipack motor set being sold separately anywhere else but HL yet. Itís not on Estes website or for sale at AC Supply or Belleville Hobby. With Aerotech offering a similar pack of different powered QJet motors I wouldnít be surprised if Estes does as well, as a regular retail item.

I see the new Q-Jet assortment (https://www.asp-rocketry.com/ecomme...t=130&navPanel=) as a sort of "Blast Off Flight Pack" https://estesrockets.com/product/00...ff-flight-pack/

I have not seen that 1A, 1B and 1C motor package anywhere else but HL. But oddly, they don't carry the Rocket Science Starter Set.

Another mystery of merchants' stocking decisions, I guess.
