    I purchased this rocket on eBay from the seller "jharding58".
    I would rate the finish of this kit a little under average.
    The fins are not perfectly sealed, not all the same size and not all are aligned correctly. Paint job and decal placement is good.

    I removed the streamer and I'm using a 12" parachute instead.

    This kit resides in South Carolina, USA.

    The seller from whom I bought this kit meant well and took off the plastic shrink wrap to additionally pack each item in the box so no damage would occur when being shipped.
    Ah well.. I only paid $10 for the starter set so there is no lose :-)

    The B6-4 engines are daten 1987 so this kit must have been sold in the late 80's.

    This is the oldest kit I have in my line-up. It was the first version to be produced by Estes and came in a plastic bag without a paper hang tag. Later pre Demon Alpha kits came with a yellow paper hang tag which I also have. However it is missing half the parts.

    This particular kit was missing the parachute. I used the mint chute from my spare Astron Alpha to make this kit complete.

    This is an old Estes Astron Birdie and is a perfectly preserved example of an Estes classic!

    I think the Birdie was certainly one of the most novelty of all rockets in the Estes lineup.

    This kit has the rare original copper colored plastic cone. It is very brittle and has a crack. That is probably why Estes changed the nose cone to a hollowed out balsa version later on.

    Included are 2 Estes B6-2 engines dated 4/30/71.

    This is one of my earliest model rockets that I built in 1981.

    In March 2011 I decided to repair the fins and completely repaint the model.

    Here a picture before I begann the restoration:
  • Click me...

    It had gone through some tough times.

    On 7th October, 2013 I decided to retire this old rocket.
