The Hawkeye kit is a MASSIVE upscale of the classic Estes kit. The original kit was based on a tiny .544 inch diameter tube and was only about 8 inches tall. This NEW kit is a HUGE compared to the original. It stands an impressive 43.70 inches tall, and has a diameter of 2.6 inches. The fins are as big as the mainsail on a sailboat. When you walk out onto the launch range lugging this big rocket on you shoulder, you will get a lot of attention. People will come running up to you asking what that big thing is.

Because it is so big and has such huge fins, it takes off really slow. You don’t know how impressive this is until you see it for yourself.

Here are some of the features:

Laser-Cut Parts, like the fins, centering rings, and bulkheads. The precision-cut of the laser insures that all the parts fit together like a glove.

Heavy-walled engine mount tube.

Plastic nose cone. This is a big nose cone made from urethane casting resin that is hollow like a blow-molded nose cone.

Interlocking framework inside the model that holds the through-the-wall fin tabs securely in place. Since the framework is made from balsa, it keeps the rocket lightweight and strong.

And the tube is slotted, ensuring that the fins will be straight along the tube, and securely attached to the rocket. You can be sure that you’ll get a ton of flights out of this big mid-powered rocket.

The rocket also includes a Nomex cloth parachute protector. This is a 9 inch square of flame-proof cloth that elminates the need of using wadding with this rocket.

The water-slide decals are also upscaled from the original Estes classic model. You’ll love them and get lots of compliments from your friends on how great this rocket looks.

Recommended 24mm diameter rocket engine: Aerotech E15-4 or E30-4.

Requires a rocket launch pad equipped with a 1/4-inch diameter launch rod, plus finishing supplies like glue and paint.

The Apogee Components Saturn 1B model rocket kit is a 1/70th scale replica of the famous rocket flown into space by NASA in the 1960’s and 70’s. More than just something that sits on your shelf as a display, this rocket can actually be launched in the air.

The reason the Saturn 1B ranks on top of everyone’s favorite is because it includes the eight fuel tanks in a big cluster, the unique transition section that conforms to the eight tank tubes, and eight fins – twice as many as any other NASA rocket. Plus it has lots of corrugations that give the rocket lots of surface texture. Finally, it has an elaborate paint pattern that makes it unique and eye appealing.

This kit features:

Highly detailed injection-molded Apollo Capsule, engine nozzles and transition section that fits over the 8 fuel tank tubes.
Meticulously detailed vacuum form wraps for the booster thrust structure, Interstage, and 2nd stage
Eye-popping detailed embossed wrap for the transition of the 2nd stage to the Service Module
Special “raised ink” wrap for the Service Module portion to bring out the raised panel lines on the rocket
Five-color water-slide decals. Includes markings for all Saturn 1B missions flown by NASA, including Skylab
Four hours of video instruction. These not only show where to place the parts, but how-to put them together correctly. The CD is not a DVD disk. It works on both Macintosh and Windows computers. Requires Adobe Acrobat Reader and Apple QuickTime player.
10 pages of superb painting instructions and drawings show the colors on the rocket
Vacuum-form baseplate that shows the excellent surface detail on the bottom of the rocket.
Two Nylon-cloth parachutes

Recommended 29mm diameter rocket engines: Aerotech F20-4W, or F42-4T

Requires a rocket launch pad equipped with a 1/4-inch diameter launch rod, plus finishing supplies like glue and paint.

The MIM-23B Hawk Missile is a great rocket kit to introduce you to mid-power scale models. This is a semi-scale model of the surface-to-air missile (S.A.M.) used by the US Army up until the mid 1990’s. It is still in use today by the US Marine Corps and many foreign nations.

This model is perfect for modelers that like rockets that can stand up to a lot of punishment. It has thick-walled body tubes, plywood fins and centering rings, and a nylon cloth parachute. It also features through-the-wall fin tabs, so these fins are not going to let go if the rocket has a harder-than-normal landing.

This kit is pretty much deluxe in nearly every way. You can tell it was engineered by someone with experience building mid-power rockets. There are lots of laser-cut parts for precision mating between parts, and the thick wall tubes are stout enough to withstand big rocket engines and hard landings.

Other features:

Slotted tubes and through-the-wall tabs on the base of the fins: Allow for perfect spacing and exceptional durability.

Huge Balsa Wood Nose Cone: Helps to make the rocket lightweight, and is easy to work with. It can be finished with common rocketry supplies like sanding sealer and spray paint.

Kevlar Shock Cord.

Nomex parachute protector.

This MIM-23B Hawk rocket uses traditional construction techniques you are familiar with from building smaller model rockets. It can be assembled using wood glue, and goes together in a straightforward manner.

Recommended 29mm diameter rocket engine (not included): Aerotech F20-4, F20-7 or F42-4, F42-8

Requires a rocket launch pad equipped with a 1/4-inch diameter launch rod, plus construction supplies like glue and paint.
