Product Description

Dr Zooch R-7 Luna

Cold War era Russian rocket. Parachute recovery.  12" tall.  5.27" fin span.  Skill Level 3
18mm motors like the B6-4, C6-5

This is a flying model rocket kit of the Russian R-7 Luna vehicle. Although it is made and sold in the USA, it's the one for you if you are longing for those good old days of the Cold War. Those thrilling days of the late 1950s and very early 1960s when the Soviets were able to fly space missions, apparently as easily as catching a bus, while the US rockets remained rooted to the ground like oak trees... (sort of like the last couple of years)... this kit will make you want to wear drab itchy woolen clothing, join the army to play hockey, drink vodka and stand in long lines for toilet paper. The kit stands ~ 12 inches tall when completed- unless you are looking to use it for propaganda purposes to enhance your personal standing in the world view- then you place it close to the camera lens while you stand back 300 feet behind it- and it appears life size. The kit uses 18 mm B or C s in the business end and requires average skill to build- until after you've finished it- then you tell everyone that it was the combined skill set that was given to you by the socialist party that allowed you to make this glorious creation which will now send a probe to the moon. This too will enhance your standing in the world view- because most people walking the planet now as just as gullible as the ones who walked the earth during the days of the Cold War. So buy it, build it and enhance your stature in world opinion It's either that of fade away and become a non-person. Anyhow- buy it 
and remember what the Russians learned that the Americans forgot... when you've got a reliable workhorse booster... stick with it! For those of you who don't understand that- the basic R-7 booster that lofted Sputnik, Luna and Vostok- today sends people to the International Space Station aboard the Soyuz, while we in the US can't even build a Saturn IB anymore.
