I am not sure why people are comparing Real Life Performance with which one they would prefer to see as a kit but I guess everyone makes decisions based on difference reasoning. I know the performance of the M-50 Honest John was much better then the M-30 Honest John but I believe a poll on these two version would show the people prefer the M-30 version.

John,

I personally would be quite happy should Estes decide to kit either Pershing!

The Pershing IA has an advantage over the Pershing II as a flying scale model: Having fins on both of its stages, it would lend itself to staging (either gap-staging or electronically-initiated staging). The body tube in the kit need not come in two sections for this to be done; interested modelers could cut the body tube into two sections to create the two stages.

Ok... you COULD, but WHY?? I couldn't really see the point to this other than getting mission points in competition... and if you were REALLY interested in that, you could do the same with a Pershing II using flip-out clear fins on the second stage...

Later! OL JR

B'cuz the Pershing IA -doesn't- need flip-out clear fins on the second stage...

Nice meeting you at Burger King JR! (NARAM 53).

I picked up Sandman's Pershing 1A at NARAM 53... I will make it into a two stager... it just looks DEADLY!

Jonathan

P.s. Sandman, please consider a Genie Air-to-Air nuclear missile
