This is the Dr. Zooch Rockets Titan IIIC SLV5 flying model rocket kit. It is a semi-scale model that represents the very first of the Titan IIIC launch vehicles, which flew on June 18, 1965 and lofted Space Launch Vehicle number 5 (SLV5) for the US Air Force. After that the Titan IIIC vehicles went on to fly 35 more times performing everything from sending the first pair of landers to the planet Mars, to having a starring role in the Oscar winning movie Marooned- when they fictionally launched one through the eye of a hurricane. 

When fully constructed this model stands 12.75 inches tall and has a basic empty weight of 3.6 ounces. It is single stage and uses a standard 18mm motor, such as a B6-4 (NO engines are included with the kit). Recovery is by parachute or by impact with the planet earth, depending on how close you follow the instructions. This is a basic skill level kit, meaning that almost anyone can build and fly it successfully. All of the primary parts are either wood or paper. So buy it, build it and wait for the eye of a hurricane so you can launch yours Hollywood style!
