Vintage Estes Model Rockets Kits That Need a Home!

The For Sale List

As my model rocketry interests continue to evolve, it has become obvious that I own too many original Estes kits that will never be built. It might be a good idea to sell some via a fixed price list to others who collect or enjoy building vintage kits. As I am not in a hurry to liquidate these kits, the fixed price list makes more sense than the eBay auction route. As a result, I will price these kits on an attractive basis (against my Estes kit pricing database) and will provide clear and accurate descriptions.

The initial kit listings will be the more recent and common kits. Please remember that I'm simply starting up the For Sale list. However, I do plan to dig deep into the collection and place some earlier 1960s and 1970s duplicate kits up for sale also.

You can trust me as a seller. Please check the Liberty Seated dime portion of my website where as I've sold $1000+ coins to fellow coin collector friends. If you wish to check my eBay rating, handle is "gfortin" with 100% positive feedback.

Postage and packaging costs are presently an unknown and I will only charge actual shipping costs. Let's discuss shipping method and cost if you have interest in a purchase.

Payment can be done via good check, money order or Paypal.

Mailing address is Gerry Fortin, 225 Valley Rd, Raymond, Maine 04071. Since I work half time in China, then there will be periods of time when rocket kits can be held and shipped under seller's and buyer's mutual convenience.
