A Classic
By KTM450 October 24, 2016
I built and flew this model many years ago. It was $20 at the time if that gives you any idea. I was never very happy with the job I did building it so I wanted to give it another shot. This model is not always available so I grabbed it when I saw Hobbylinc had it. If your looking at this you likely know that this is a flying model rocket that is largely cardboard tubes with some detail plastic parts as opposed to a plastic model representation of a Saturn V available from Revell or Airfix for example. If you're used to plastic models, this can be a bit different as you're dealing largely with cardboard, balsa, white glue/epoxy, and instructions that look like they're from the 1960's. Still, it can be made into an excellent representation of this historic rocket. And, you can fly it - if you're willing to risk all that hard work. It seems that this kit only gets re-released every so often. When it's not in circulation, the price goes up significantly on eBay. If you're thinking about getting one, might be a good idea to pull the trigger as you never know how long it will be available.

Definitely a must build for builders.

Take your time on this one. Very well done kit. Detailed plastic wraps. Very challenging to build and paint.

Excellent Moon Rocket Model
By johncpo41 May 25, 2017
I started with Estes Rockets back in the early days when you had to order out of a old catalog. I built the Big Bertha, and many more to learn physics, chemistry and above all safety. My younger brother formed a sanctioned model rocket club in Rochester, NY and as far as I know it is still functioning, all because of this model rocket. As I remember this was the greatest of all model rockets an it took more sand paper and balsa filler to work thorough the fins and body tubes than we could afford but we got through it. An amazing kit and well worth the effort but not recommended for novice builders but for highly experienced builders.
