YES! This model (see: http://www.fliskits.com/products/ro...l/saturn_1b.htm [for others who may not yet have seen it]) is well within the Estes Mini Launch Pad's limits for rocket length (18"), diameter (1"), and weight (1.5 ounces *without* a motor installed). Its stated wind velocity range is 0 - 5 miles per hour, but most folks don't risk flying such intricately-detailed scale model rockets on windier days, anyway.
