  1. JH Anders

    Excellent kit. Make sure you sand the plastic cone well so the paint will stick. I had to learn that novice mistake myself since I havent painted a model since I was a kid.

  2. James W Piliero

    An excellent kit. Could you bring back the Maxi Brutes? Kids love bigger rockets when they see them

  3. Buffalo Joe

    Excellent kit! I painted mine to look like an actual wartime V-2, added a nylon chute for softer landings. This is an excellent kit! You won’t be sorry spending your money on this one!

  4. Rocket Guru

    Thank you Estes, for the 2nd release of a 24mm motor powered V-2, and 3rd release over all, from the original 18mm motor powered release. Would like to see the other sizes return, both BT-55 and BT-101. Maybe a 29mm powered V-2, super detailed, for more shock, awe and Cert.1 possibility?

    Well I must say I got the kit as a belated birthday gift. All I can say is WOW. Its gonna take some time but crossing fingers for success.
