This kit is NOT for beginners- nor is it for people who don’t
bother to read the text. So, if you are either of those and
you buy it- don’t come cryin’ to us if it’s beyond your skill
level. This kit is a semi-scale version of the Atlas Agena. It
uses 18mm engines such as any B or C engine (not
included). You do, however get everything else you’ll need
to build the kit… well… excluding glue… a hobby knife…
paints, sand paper and skill… okay so you won’t get
everything, but there are lots of parts… just look at the
Wow! That’s lots of stuff in there and there’s and very
complete and well illustrated set of instructions, too.
The rocket is based on a T-60 tube and stands just under 20 inches tall with its FlameFins
and 15.75 inches tall without the fins. It has a basic empty weight of 2.4 oz and can fly over 1,000 feet high.
Now since you’re probably wondering just what skill level this kit

Skill level 2: You have your own hobby knife and glue and know how
to use each.
Skill level 3: You once slipped and cut the heck out of your finger
with your hobby knife, but the folks in the emergency room knew how

Skill level 4: You’ve slipped and cut yourself so many times with your
hobby knife that the little “snit” sound that the blade makes when it
gets you is familiar, you can make a tourniquet out of a paint brush
and the local emergency ward keeps blood on standby just for you.
Skill level 5: You once slipped with your hobby knife and cut off a
finger, but were able to repair it yourself with stuff in your hobby tool
