Product Description

Rocketarium Arcturus Sounding Rocket Kit

Skill Level: 3

The Arcturus sounding rocket was intended to serve as a replacement, or upgrade, to the popular Arcas sounding rockets. It's main selling point was that it could be launched from the existing Arcas launch platforms, avoiding new infrastructure expenses. The Arcturus rocket never gained a wide user base as new two-stage Arcas configurations served the same purpose more efficiently. The finished scale model stands an impressive 38.75" tall. This is a big model rocket kit!


Challenges

The Arcturus rocket kit is offered for sale complete with ejection baffle and fin mounting attachments for added detail. These are formed from pre-cut balsa pieces, using the illustrated instructions.


Self-adhesive decals are included for lettering, logo, and bolts. Painting masks help modelers paint the arcs.
