"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.

"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!

 
"Nice Scale Kit"
FinBurner (Brandonbacn@outlook.com)
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.

 
"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.
