There is no better way to celebrate our anniversary than with one of the most iconic and highly recognized rockets of all time! The “classic” styling of the Alpha line continues with the “very special” limited edition of the Alpha VI! Celebrate 60 years with Estes! Join the FUN! Young and not so young Rocketeers will want to add this rocket to their collection for sure! And you just might want to buy two – one to launch and one to build and proudly display on that shelf of yours.

    Good Looking Alpha

    Just got this one for Christmas. Ordered in the special offer. I will tell you it looks sweet and one of a kind. This rocket will turn eyes at the field. Like the color scheme and the 60th anniversary stickers too!!
    Thanks Estes for another home run

    Nice version, very spiffy!

    Of course I had to have an Alpha VI to celebrate Estes 60th anniversary of being in business. Sure is a nice kit with the plastichrome red fins and nose cone, and a neat “pearlescent” white body tube. I imagine that this kit will be somewhat “limited edition” so I would suggest getting a couple now for your collection…

    A Beautiful Kit !

    This Alpha VI Kit has the Perfect colors for it’s 60th anniversary. The Fins and Cone are a bright chrome like cherry Red. They shine like the older Citation Quasar of the 70s, except it’s red. The Body Tube is like none I have seen before. It’s not just white,, but a Glowing “Pearlescent” White. It is actually the color of a pearl. You can not describe it. Adorned with a cool Blue multicolor anniversary Decal, you can’t go wron with this kit. So, I give this kit a 10 and a Must Have one too. You have to buy several. If you plan to build or fly this,, you must get extras for your Collection.
    It is the Best Alpha yet ! You will want to show this one off. Great Job,,, Estes !

    First and Last ! ( but not least).

    I have almost all of the various types Alpha kits ever made, including the very First year kit. Plus a 1968 one signed by Vern himself, of a kit like I had in the 60s, which was my first model rocket. Plus I have my old built one from then. What a cool addition to my massive Alpha collection this will be, with this Alpha VI ! Not to mention a couple that will see the skies. Thank you Vern Estes, and Bill Simon, who recently autographed some vintage Alpha kit plans for me. Keep it up, Estes ! Glad to see this one. Danny Almond,,, Norwood NC.
