The kit arrived this morning. I have been looking at the parts on and
off all day, so far resisting the urge to build. I know it will be cool
but could it be cryogenic?
Has anyone converted this kit to a true 2 stage setup, or have any ideas
on how it may be done?

This is a Estes Sandhawk kit your referring too?  If so where did you obtain it.
From my understanding this kit has been discontinued, and have been having problems finding one.

Yep, it's been done. There are plans on Sunsite in the Plans directory,
terrier-sandhawk.ps (postscript file). If you can't do postscript, email
me your home address and I'll send you the plans.

Thanks Bob. I have a postscript free zone, but will try to get the file
decoded locally.

I sure wished I could find a Estes Ter / Sh in my local shops.  Love
that rocket.  I sent emails to a few online vendors asking but have
not had any replies.  Maybe one or possible the plans may turn up
someday in my travels.

The Estes Terrier/Sandhawk was one of the first kits I purchased upon my
rebirth. I was VERY dissapointed in the quality of ALL the plastic parts
and ALL the wooden parts. This was a very frustrating project which
required extensive  remaking and repairing of parts. The project ended up
being broken in two over my knee and thrown in the trash in a very un***
like fit of anger. I do not recommend this kit nor do I recommend ANY
current Estes kit that costs over $20.00. It seems to me that the more
expensive an Estes kit is, the lower the quality control.  Foxeye, there
was some scale data included with the kit. I'll dig it up and attempt to
scan and upload it.
