Default Another Estes Mars kit...

The Destination Mars Leaper, released a couple of weeks ago. Powered by a 13mm A10, all you need for assembly is 3 pieces of scotch tape to hold the two piece rods together.

Very attractive packaging!

That looks fun!

BTW, "Leaper" meant something MUCH different in "Quadrophenia".

Who in marketing thought shooting fire out of that guy’s rear end was a good idea? I hope they at least put him under with a general for motor insertion.

Ya-hoo!!

Preparation H probably wouldn’t hurt either....

I’ve heard of certain rockets being a pain in the you know what to fly, but(t) this one may take the cake!

They are not giving those away either...so the Prep H may be very appropriate.

Still nice to see them continue to release some fun/different kits.

I have it on good authority that several of the original engineers of the Gemini spacecraft ejection seats were involved in creating this new model.
