The Boyce Aerospace Hobbies Nike Ajax 1/14th Scale "Builders Kit" perfectly complements the popular Nike Hercules 1/14th Scale "Builders Kit". This model is a replica of the United State's first anti-aircraft missile system that was deployed in the 1950's. The Nike Ajax became obsolete when the Nike Hercules missile system took over in the 1960s. The Ajax had limited speed, range and accuracy when compared to it's older brother. Our kit parts are crafted entirely of high-quality ABS; printed exclusively on Raise 3D N2 printers. The kit includes a detailed booster fin can, sustainer fin can, interstage transition, finned nose cone and motor retention. Builder to supply tubes (ST-10, ST-11 and BT-50), parachute and motors.
Boyce Aerospace Hobbies recommends hobbyists under the age of 13 be supervised by an adult at all times.
Nice compliment to the Nike Hercules as is same scale. A larger version would be fantastic. Building Nike Zeus next. It finishes very nice. Sand sand sand prime sand etc is the key.
Builders kit, you supply the tubes and recovery gear. #10 and #11 tubes available from erockets. Just cut to lengths per instructions. This has a twist lock motor retention as opposed to a screw down motor retainer on some other Boyce kits.(Not to be confused with screw-on motor retention). Easy assembly, great looking result. Nice kit.
I was very pleased when Boyce Aerospace released their Nike Ajax builders kit. The part's are superbly done and the fit is precise. It is great to have kits with this level of detail and ease of construction. Another great kit from Boyce Aerospace!
This is a great kit, I would love to see this in a larger scale. Customer service is the best I’ve ever had,I just can’t say enough good things about Boyce Aerospace! Thanks for all the help you folks gave me!
