We have broken up a bulk pack of this popular kit and are making them available at a reduced price. Everything is the same as the retail kit except there is no fancy header card in the package.

The Viking can be built with three, four or five fins in 48 possible arrangements. This makes it perfect to use for comparison studies in aerodynamics. In fact, the Viking is so popular there's even a GEMS book written for it. No matter how you place the fins, this unique, adjustable rocket offers the ultimate in high performance model rocket flight!

This easy-to-build, Skill Level 1 rocket kit includes a molded nose cone, a single piece body tube, card stock fins and self-stick decals. It's another friction fit, standard engine rocket that requires simple painting. The Viking can reach amazing launch heights over 1,600 feet and will drift back to earth on a bright streamer.
