- 09/25/1999 – Purchased Estes Y-Wing Starter Set from K-B Toys in Edinburg, IN for $9.99 (Retail $38.99). Since this is an assembled kit there are no other build instructions except for the launch pad.
- 01/19/2000 – Cut out ten shock cord mounts. Glued the broken shock cord from the Y-Wing into one of the mounts and attached to the inside of the body tube with yellow Elmers glue. This repairs the Y-Wing
