This is a flying model rocket kit of the Russian R-7 Luna vehicle.
Although it is made and sold in the USA, it's the one for you if you
are longing for those good old days of the Cold War. Those
thrilling days of the late 1950s and very early 1960s when the
Soviets were able to fly space missions, apparently as easily as
catching a bus, while the US rockets remained rooted to the
ground like oak trees... (sort of like the last couple of years)...
this kit will make you want to wear drab, itchy, woolen clothing,
join the army to play hockey, drink vodka and stand in long lines
for toilet paper. The kit stands ~ 12 inches tall when completed-
unless you are looking to use it for propaganda purposes to
enhance your personal standing in the world view- then you
place it close to the camera lens while you stand back 300 feet
behind it- and it appears life size. The kit uses 18 mm B or Cs in
the business end and requires average skill to build- until after
you've finished it- then you tell everyone that it was the combined
skill set that was given to you by the socialist party that allowed
you to make this glorious creation which will now send a probe to
the moon. This too will enhance your standing in the world view-
because most people walking the planet now are just as gullible as the ones who walked the earth
during the days of the Cold War. So buy it, build it and enhance your stature in world opinion. It's
either that or fade away and become a non-person. Anyhow- buy it and remember what the
Russians learned that the Americans forgot... when you've got a reliable workhorse booster... stick
with it! For those of you who don't understand that- the basic R-7 booster that lofted Sputnik, Luna
and Vostok, today sends people to the International Space Station aboard the Soyuz, while we in the
US can't even build a Saturn IB anymore.
Commonly Asked Questions:
(Note: These questions were sent to and answered by
our interpreter who was formerly with the Soviet
government but who is now working as a fireworks
policy enforcer for an on-line auction service.)
Q: How high will this rocket go?
A: Is big secret- only members of former KGB can
know. If you tell you must be sent to camp. Not
concentration camp with barbed wire and goon
towers- but regular camp- with tether ball,
sing-alongs, barbed wire and goon towers.
Q: What scale is iit?
A: One cubit equal to 41 meters
Q: Does it come with engines?
A: Is NOT with engines- only fake paper cones to give
American CIA something to photograph.
Q: What is the recovery system?
A: Recovery is by big red trash-bag parachute- brings
tear to eye remembering old days when lots of rubles
were around for space spectaculars.
Q: Can I pay you with a personal check?
A: Can we interest you in employment in a salt mine?
NO! No checks- persons sending checks become
non-persons and are wiped from memory- in fact I do
not even recall reading this question, because there
was no question to be reading.
