Iím not much on flying rockets this small myself. I like mine around bt60 and above if possible, recovery systems work much better and the Rocket is easy to see through flight.

Itís nice to know that it can fly but thismodel will mainly be for display for me.

I'd fly it ONCE, then make it a shelf queen.

My Boyce 1/100 MR kit arrived today. It was shipped with two escape towers. That's a nice touch. Fly it with the first one and break it, then repair with the second one and make it a shelf queen!

Did it come with the BT or can you buy it from them?

Hey guys, we made a typo on the weight and altitude on the 1/100th Mercury Redstone kit. Actual weight is 18 grams and altitude with an A10 is 469 feet. Sorry bout that! We'll fix our website right away.

That will put it at about the same weight as the Alpha. After getting the parts, I couldn't fathom it ending up weighing more than a Bertha. I imagine my flights will be with a 1/2A3-2T. It's so tiny!

I remember the first time seeing the series of US manned rockets from MR through the Saturn V modeled in 1/100 scale. That Mercury-Redstone was simply dwarfed by the Saturn V, and it really drove home the tremendous increase in vehicle size as payload requirements increased on our march to the moon.

I got mine in the mail today, too. The supplied body tube wrap looks nice.

Does anyone know a source for 1/100 scale decals for the Mercury capsule?

Mine coming today.
Need to get the BT19 tube from erockets.
Does anyone know the length of tube needed?
Guess I can wait to read the instructions.
Can't wait for the Mercury Titan and Gemini to come out.
I want to created a flying model display of all the manned space crafts we used to get to the moon.
Nice to know it will fly over 400 feet also
