Kits By Skill Level

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced modeler, Estes has the kit for you.

We have an enormous selection of model rocket kits that include sport fliers, multi-stagers, payloaders, scale NASA-based transports, military-styled missiles and classic Estes kits.

Estes rockets are grouped into four catagories: RTF (Ready to Fly), ARF (Almost Ready to Fly), E2X (Easy to Assemble) and Skill Levels 1 through 5.

All skill level 1-5 kits require measuring, assembly, sanding, gluing and painting. As the skill level goes up, the difficulty in building skills and time to build and finish is increased.

Skill Level 1-Beginner builder skills.

Skill Level 2-Average building skills.

Skill Level 3-Intermediate building skills.

Skill Level 4-Advanced building skills.

Skill Level 5-Master building skills.
