Estes Flying Model Rocket Kit Blue Origin Builders kit EST 7315
Estes is proud to partner with Blue Origin to provide you with a piece of history that inspires kids to dream and imagine. The New Shephard collection will allow you to build and fly a piece of history and then display it on your shelf for years to come.
Become part of the new generation of space travel by building your own scale model of Blue Origin’s New Shepard. The New Shepard builder kit model is lighter than its ready-to-fly sibling which allows it to soar to cloud busting altitudes of 700 ft. on a C6-5 engine.
