Estes Flying Model Rocket Kit Nike-X  EST 7259

You asked and we listened! Another highly sought after kit is rejoining the Estes line! The Nike-X single stage rocket is a scale-like model of the army’s 4th generation, two-stage surface-to-air interceptor missile. Nike-style design with army décor including high quality realistic roll pattern waterslide decals. Great performance and really impressive flights.
