Tubes, tubes and more tubes! In all you have six side body tubes and the main body tube! Standing at 22.3 inches tall, the Super Neon is making a comeback with an all new color scheme but is still the same great flyer it was! Very cool and colorful waterslide decals, precision laser cut wood fins, a plastic nose cone and high quality body tubes build into a very impressive rocket! And a somewhat blast from the past with rugged high performance that blasts to 1,000 feet!

WHAT YOU NEED TO BUILD: Scissors, pencil, ruler, fine sandpaper, carpenter’s glue, plastic cement, hobby knife, rubber bands, masking tape, primer (white), paint (hot pink, orange, white) and clear coat (optional). (Tools, construction and finishing supplies not included.)

  1. Rocket Guru

    Cool kit to upscale, with BT55’s and 24mm power.

  2. James

    I have had this rocket for years, it has flown at least a hundred times and still flies great. It has survived flights where the parachute never deployed and landed without a scratch. The design is great and this rocket is my favorite mid-power rocket and my good luck charm. Would highly recommend.

  3. Eric

    Swear I put this in as a mini-powered design back in the … late 70s,early 80s? for one of Estes’ contests. Whether they got ideas from a kid’s scribbles then or not, I’m still fond to see this design – in all its guises!

  4. James

    Stable with a Keychain camera

    Hooked up a Night Owl keychain camera and it didn’t seem to make any difference at all…the rocket flew BEAUTIFULLY. Beautifully stable…awesome build. I highly recommend it

  5. John Eric

    Fun kit to build and launch

    It was very fun to build. It flies great and is a definite crowd pleaser at any rocked launch.
