3D model description

When the Estes Interceptor was original created and released to the public as kit number K-50 (later 1250) in 1971 it included a page showing the idea of a booster that was never part of the kit.

The kit was re-released by Estes from 2008 to 2011 and again from 2019 to present. There was also an upscale version produced called the Interceptor E.

I have designed a nose cone to fit the Estes BT-60 tubing that will help you make that booster a reality that you can add to your kit. It is actually modeled on the Titan III-C booster motor nose cones.

You can download the simulated nozzle here that fits BT-60, too.

9) Booster simulated nozzle with engine hook channel
