"Great looking and flying rocket"
duanenorris (Richmond, KY)
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.

"Mini Honest John Upgrades"
champfluff
Great rocket, but the original Honest John, from Estes, is made with a BT-55 and uses 2 launch lugs, with 2 launch lug spacers, to prevent wind cocking, an inch from both ends of the body tube. Split your launch lug and launch lug spacer in halve evenly, making 2 shorter launch lugs, along with the spacers to match the launch lugs and align so they do not bind on the launch rod, for a straighter launch in light wind.

 
"easy build"
Bubba02STi (Colorado Springs, Co)
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 pretty

 
"Nice looking model that flies well too!"
TomnSA (south Texas)
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!

Comments
