Turn heads at your next launch with the Boyce Aerospace Hobbies Little Joe I. This 1/100th scale rocket is small and highly-detailed and includes, airframe with fins, motor mount, capsule nose cone, escape tower, removable launch lugs and detailed assembly and painting instructions. The escape tower comes as a one-piece three-sided truss with capsule nose and LES motor. The model uses one mini A10-3T Estes model rocket motor. The Little Joe I is easy to build and requires sanding with fine grit wet/dry sand paper and primer to achieve a smooth glossy finish prior to printing.
Boyce Aerospace Hobbies recommends hobbyists under the age of 13 be supervised by an adult at all times.
I appreciate the quality of this kit and others that I purchased from you. (I also purchased the Little Joe II and Saturn 1 SA-5 Builders Kit). Shipping was fast and the protective packing assured a safe arrival. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I look forward to adding it to my collection.
