Flis Kits HERC-5
The HERC-5 continues the tradition of exciting ships set in a future of galactic exploration with the members of the United Solar Planetary Federation and her growing allies such as the Hobbicron Industrial Empire. Merging the best of technologies from each government has lead to the first true recreational craft solidifying the value of this galactic cooperation.
Fliskits invites you to explore this fanciful universe and your own imagination with this wonderful addition to our futuristic line of model rocket kits. Featuring one of the most unique tube fin setups in the industry, the HERC-5 also sports a full sheet of colorful water slide decals, positive motor retention and recovery via a colorful plastic parachute.
While offering unique building challenges (you have to cut the body tubes for the twin ram-jet style tube fins). Cutting tubes is not difficult, but it is different. It is also a very valuable skill to know. Once cut, the remainder of the HERC-5 assembly is a snap and the final result will be the pride of your fleet!
