The Blue J was designed especially for new rocketeers, with little or no experience, and younger modelers. As this is a Skill Level 1 model rocket kit, the balsa fins are pre-cut for quick and easy assembly. This kit includes illustrated instructions, large decals, parachute kit, and other parts needed to build this rocket. The Blue J can be launched on commonly available C6-5 model rocket motors, and composite 18mm D motors.
This is a sport-scale model of the S25-Berkut which was part of the first operational Surface-To-Air missile system. Developed in the USSR in the 1950's, it was intended to defend Moscow from aerial attacks. The large fins really make it stand out. The model rocket has an impressive 8.47" fin span and stands nearly 28" tall. The scale S25-Berkut missile flies D to F motors for a wide motor selection. As the tail-end is wider, the kit includes a plywood transition ring, and cardstock transition template. This is a Skill Level 4 kit.
