The Retro-Rocket kit. Easy to assemble, awesome to behold. Hang it from your ceiling and just try to imagine how fast it's going. What planets and alien life forms has it made contact with, how many astronauts have called its cozy quarters home?
Space-faring Rockets are some of the tallest towers in the world. But these towering assemblage of high technology aren't anchored to bedrock. These structures are the vehicles that hold a futuristic promise of traveling to the stars, making new discoveries and spreading humankind across the galaxy.
The four stages include an engine compartment, living quarters, operations deck and stowage room with an internal ladder connecting the stages and man-ports in the bulkheads. Two observation windows provide 360-degree viewing operations, and the tri-fin tail configuration maximizes stability with a minimum of drag.*
A hardened nose-cone assures safe penetration of even the densest nebulae, and the structural integrity of the organic-matrix fiber frame is the best in the fleet. The external ingress ladder is equally strong and fully detachable.
This is a 1/25 scale model, a perfect size for O-scale and G-scale train sets and suitable for populating with little green army men too. Manufactured in the USA from top quality solid oak and formaldehyde-free domestic plywood, the completed model stands 23 inches tall. Some sanding required. Tools needed: 100 grit sandpaper, wood glue, wire cutters (or stout scissors) and rubber bands are helpful but optional.
*As theoretically compared to four similar fins. Note: Rocket does not actually fly. This is a static display model only.
