V2 mod build Review by Mauser

Great kit, modified mine by fiberglassing the body tube and fins, added an elastic cord shock cord system and tied it to the motor tube which has been reinforced. it is painted roll pattern & green and looks stunning. The kit is good and can easily be modified to use larger motors for certifications. It's a true classic!!

A must have - my favorite! Review by Brian S

This is my all-time favorite rocket. It's big, wide, looks cool.
The fins are ultra strong due to the thru-body design. I made them even stronger by using epoxy on all joints. It adds weight, but it is bullet-proof now.

This rocket is perfect to put a mini keychain camera on too!

For those starting out, I would build a few others first before attempting this one so that you have a little experience first. The lower body and fins are a little more involved than a lower level. Also, it is a little difficult to paint like the directions suggest. It takes some planning and lots of tape.

I am actually on my second one because I lost my first to the trees. A word of caution - be sure to use the proper diameter launch rod. I think I lost the rocket because I forgot and used a smaller rod. This gave it some wiggle room and it really diverted of the pad. Add a semi-windy day and I didn't see it again!

Great rocket! Review by JohnVH

Pretty easy to build, classic shape, only problem I had was the parachute lines ripped out of the chute in the air, will have to upgrade the parachute.

Complex, but rewarding Review by Zachary

The instructions are a little difficult to follow, but it is quite an amazing rocket! Very good buy.

Great Piece Of History Review by Steve

This is a beautiful rocket. It flys very straight and you can fit a 24" nylon chute for softer landings. This always draws a crowd and elevating the rocket base from the launch disc results in a slow rise and rapid acceleration with an E9 motor. Flys great on a D12 too!

EXCELLENT ROCKET! Review by Michael

As a long time Rocketeer, this rocket is the best rocket for intermediate builders. going at over 900 feet, this rocket will give you the small piece of heaven we all want. although the first time my rocket tried to launch, i had assembled it incorrectly, an it exploded. but after i fixed the problem, it flew like a dream.

Amazing rocket Review by Nicholas

This rocket is a good build for an experienced builder, and it's really fun to shoot off

Good, consistent rocket with a history Review by alex

I actually have two of these, one I bought that was in a collection of rockets I bought from the classifieds, and one I built myself. The older one has been flown bunches of times and has always been a solid performer, with very consistent flight characteristics that have resulted in easy recoveries inside the launch field. Be sure to use good glue (like epoxy) to hold the fin area together, and the thing will be fairly bulletproof (resistant to breakage...). Good bang for the buck, and a nice addition to any collection (Werner Von Braun would be proud).

my favorite rocket yet Review by Caleb

if you are into model rocketry you need this. launched quite smooth on D12-3 engines. had an amazingly graceful take off and a slow strait decent. not a rocket to start on, as there is some steps that proved to be more difficult than expected. a definite must for any true collector.
