easy build
By Bubba02STi October 11, 2012
easy to build... looks good on the shelf... looks good on the launch pad... but it needs nose weight to have a good stable flight... it will still fly up and recover safely but for a nice straight flight add some clay to the nose... the waterslide decals are a bit tricky cause there are so many small ones... but once it is built and painted it sure looks purty

Great looking and flying rocket
By duanenorris September 25, 2013
This rocket is an easy build. When completed, it looks great. The decals take a bit of patience, but are worth the effort in the final look. I did clear coat after adding the decals. The kit includes clay for the nose cone. Be sure to use it. I have flown it on an A10-3T. Flies great. Very quick off the pad, and easy recovery due to small power of motor. This kit has me thinking about other small/mini rocket projects.

Nice Scale Kit
By FinBurner October 8, 2014
This is a nice scale kit that can be made a little more detailed with the following tips: 1. Carefully sand the fins to the profile in step E3. 2. Paint the model flat olive drab (OD). Once it dries, coat it with a clear gloss coat and let that dry before applying the decals. This will help your decals hide. Once the decals are dry, give it a coat of flat clear (dullcote) to give it a more military look.

Nice looking model that flies well too!
By TomnSA April 10, 2014
I have always like scale (or semi-scale) models. This Mini Honest John is a great little kit. If you have never worked with balsa fins this is a great kit to start with. The instructions were well illustrated and if you take a little time you can have a really great looking rocket when you are done. A minimum of pretty basic modelling supplies (white glue, fine grit sand paper, etc.)were needed. We flew this for the first time yesterday and on a windless day we recovered the rocket six feet from the launch pad!
