Estes X-Wing Model Rocket Wood and Aluminum Patterns
Here's a set of patterns from the Estes X-Wing Model Rocket. The first image shows a 4up X-Wing wood and metal pattern for the top section section of the fuselage. Note the aluminum R2-D2 and all the details carved out of wood.

These patterns provided the detail from the backs of the engines.

The back of the fuselage was done in 2x the actual scale. Note that there is no complete pattern of the Estes X-Wing in one scale as different parts were patterned in different sizes.

The back side of the previously shown patterns show the Estes markings. The part #'s, scale, and company name are listed, a far cry from similar Kenner pieces which were often unlabeled and uncataloged.

These pieces formed sections of the nose and the engines, respectively.

Finally, all of the pieces together alongside production parts.
