Hi not too long ago I just purchased the 1/9 scale Honest John missile , and I also purchased the Mercury Redstone rocket , both these models or such high quality that it's hard to describe but I can tell you this especially with the Honest John all the real hard work is already done for you write down to the details , all you need is a few basic parts such as the body tube , your parachutes and your engine mount at a little bit of hardware that's about it , both these rockets are going to be my fault projects so as I finish them I will post photographs , but if you want a high quality model don't hesitate they are well worth every penny whether you intend to fly them or just have them on display in your home or even office personally I don't even think of to fly my that's how nice they are but that's up to you thank you Charlie
