A highly sought after scale kit has returned to Estes! You asked and we listened. More scale kits and this is just the beginning. The 1/14 scale surface-to-surface missile has kick off the launch pad and is a very high flying rocket! You can expect around 1400 feet of HIGH altitude with the Honest John when powered by an E12-6. You will be pleased with the high quality parts in this kit and it needs to be a part of your collection.

    Flew the full size

    Hoping to get this kit. I was in an Honest John unit my 1st years in the Army.

    Maxi Brute/Pro Series II

    Fantastic re-issue!!!

    My question is, will Estes ever re-issue the Maxi-Brute series from the 1970’s? I’d love to see the Honest John, V-2, Pershing, SAM-3, and Nike Ajax in Pro Series II versions.

    Thank You!!

    The Honest John has always been one of my favorite rockets. I love a paint scheme, looks like a great build. Thank you for this E powered brute.
