Spotlight Review

 
"Both entertaining and frustrating"
lt5150 (Denver, CO)
This rocket is a very good scale addition to one's fleet, and is a solid challenge at Skill Level 3. Most of the assembly is conventional Estes: the engine mount / engine hook assembly, and the typical shock cord mount. The nose of the bird, in this case the capsule is a bit more challenging. Sand and re-fit the parts to the Mercury capsule as much as necessary, it will pay off in the finish. The escape tower is tricky at best, but I've found that using straight pins on a cardboard building surface allows a jig to be setup to hold the parts as the plastic cement dries. Make sure and get good quality masking tape for painting, and you will have a beautiful rocket that Werner himself would be proud of!

"Red Stone re fit"
de727-07
A great build, you might want to paint the capsule and escape tower first. I retrofitted mine with a D engine. Great launch and flight.

 
"Great Rocket"

"Estes Mercury Redstone Liberty Bell-7, very nice scale model rocket, but can be improved"
champfluff
I have an older release P/N EST2167 and like the 2 parachutes, Main 18inches, Capsule 12inches and it keeps the Main parachute lines from getting tangled in the escape tower, at ejection. The recent release only has a single 15inch chute. Wish I had up powered the Mercury Redstone to 24mm C,D&E motors, so I will have to purchase another. Upgrade your shock cord to heavy duty 1/4inch elastic band and mount to the tube coupler, this will give you a longer lasting shock cord, mount and give you years of successful launches. Wait to glue the escape tower to the capsule and paint first for easier application and an ejection baffle would help also, for longer parachute life.

Comments

Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
