Estes – Gene Street

I started building and flying Estes Rockets back in the 1960’s. I was, what they call, a born again rocketeer in the late 90’s and have been active in the hobby ever since. I found this information about Gene Street on the Vintage Estes Rockets website and thought it was interesting.

This was my list, I made, for my first order from Estes Industries.

Gene Street held the positions of Chief Illustrator and worked in Research & Development. He was the designer on many great models. I’ve owned 7 of these over the years.
