Estes rocket kit = First Contact cover art

Estes has a new model rocket kit which almost, almost, equals the foreground ship in the cover art for TFG's 1990s First Contact supplement.

So, if you have ever desired to have a flying model of a Starfire ship here's a possible foundation for a kitbash ...

Screw the rivets, I build models for atmosphere, not detail

Given that the Estes kit looks like a specific NASA proposal from the late 1960's... I doubt there's a link of any merit.
