  • Estes - Bull Pup 12D {Kit} (1270) By Matt Gillard and Chris Fisher (June 30, 2010)

    Matt . The bull pup D12 is a sports scale rocket. I had one that I flew often and lost it on a roof. With the 2010 challenge asking for a duel review, I dusted off two kits from the build pile. Chris Fisher and I are both members of Midland Rocketry and meet up once a month. So he and I both built the kit. Chris . First up I must thank Matt for giving me the kit. Of course I know it's just ...

    (by Doyle Tatum) I purchased this model about 6 months ago and with the upcoming SoAR Birthday celebration launch (the first rocket to fly at a SoAR launch was a Bull Pup) and the discussion of converting to 24mm, on RMR, I decided to assemble the rocket. I assembled the rocket per the instructions with the following additions and exceptions: I cut a 24mm tube and then sanded the tail ...

  • Estes - Bull Pup 12D {Kit} (1270) By John Yurcina

    Brief This is a very well designed sport scale version of the USAF Bull Pup 12D. You should be able to build this rocket if you have a couple other rockets under your belt. Construction The first thing I noticed was that this model was in a box. Some Estes kits are in flimsy plastic bags, which makes the parts prone to creases and such. I opened up the box, and all the parts were ...

The DEMON is a combination of three different rocket kits: Estes Bull Pup (body tube and motor mount) Estes CC Express (fins) Estes Echostar Payloader (transition, payload tube, nose cone). To build this, you will ...
