Titan IIIC SLV5
This is the Dr. Zooch Rockets
Titan IIIC SLV5 flying model rocket kit. It is a semi-scale model that
represents the very first of the Titan IIIC launch vehicles, which
flew on June 18, 1965 and lofted Space Launch Vehicle number 5 (SLV5)
for the US Air Force. After that the Titan IIIC vehicles went on to
fly 35 more times performing everything from sending the first pair of
landers to the planet Mars, to having a starring role in the Oscar
winning movie Marooned- when they fictionally launched one through the
eye of a hurricane.
When fully constructed this model stands 12.75 inches tall and has a basic empty weight of 3.6 ounces. It is single stage and uses a standard 18mm motor, such as a B6-4 (NO engines are included with the kit). Recovery is by parachute or by impact with the planet earth, depending on how close you follow the instructions. This is a basic skill level kit, meaning that almost anyone can build and fly it successfully. All of the primary parts are either wood or paper. So buy it, build it and wait for the eye of a hurricane so you can launch yours Hollywood style!
