Dr Zooch Soyuz
The Russian Soyuz stands just over 18" tall with lots of detailed parts. Including lot's of motor nozzles. Skill Level 3
This flying model rocket kit is the Russian Soyuz! Made in America, it is as Russian as we can get it without getting the State Department involved. This is a builder’s kit- meaning that there are lots of pieces and you have to do lots of work- yet it still has everything you’ll need to get it ready to fly- except engines. When finished the rocket stands just over 18 inches tall and weighs 2.2 oz. It is a single engine-single stage rocket with parachute recovery and can be built with average skill. This kit is in scale with our R-7 Luna and Sputnik kits- a clever ploy on our part, because if you have either of those you’ll now have to buy this one to complete the set. This Soyuz kit is so Russian you’ll find yourself suddenly talking with a Russian accent, writing your “R”s backward, drinking vodka and saying “Da!” as it launches for the first time.
