  • Estes - Der Red Max {Kit} (651) [2007-] By Douglas Gardei (September 19, 2007)

    Brief: Re-release of a classic Estes rocket! Includes a cool pre-assembled pirate skull 18" parachute! My first memory of the Der Red Max was a little over twenty years ago. I was between the age of 6 and 8, and my grandfather had given me $20 for my birthday. My parents took me to a mall and I was in Kay-Bee Toy and Hobbies. I was trying to find something to spend my money ...

  • Der Red Max (Modification) By Jim Bassham

    This is my twin-engine modification of Estes' Der Red Max kit for the EMRR "Twice the Thrust" Challenge Modifications: Construction started with the two motor tubes. I cut a slit 1/4" from one end of the tubes for the hook, held it in place with masking tape and glued the engine block in place above the clip. With the clips on opposite sides, I glued the tubes to each other using epoxy. While ...

Screamin' Mimi components used: ...

  • Der Red Max (Modification) By Howard Smart

    Stage bash of two Estes kits, Der Red Max (0651) and U.S. Army Patriot (2056). A two stage rocket is produced with gap staging, allowing both booster and sustainer to have engine hooks. The upper stage looks enough like the standard Patriot to be mistaken for a stock model, enough to use the Patriot decals for the sustainer and the Red Max decals for the booster. This brings a few laughs at the ...

  • Der Red Max (Scratch) By Brian Ray

    This rocket is part of my entry in the Family Photo contest. My “family” is homages to the venerable Der Red Max. This variant is an unholy combination of the Der Red Max and the LOC/Precision Viper III. My primary components were: BT-60 about 16" – This is from another rocket that suffered a devastating crash. PNC-60. 3 BT-20 about 5" for motor mounts. ...
