Build History

  • 07/13/2010 – Purchased Estes EX-200 from Walmart in Seymour, IN for $6.00 (Retail $10.99).
  • 12/01/2011 – This model is almost ready to fly. The nose cone base was cemented to the nose cone and this completes construction of the model. Took pictures of box, instructions and the model. Matt used thin CA to attach the nose cone base to the nose cone. Tied the shock cord to the nose cone. This completes construction of Estes EX-200 model rocket #2450.
