The Little Joe booster was the first rocket designed solely for manned spacecraft qualifications and to measure critical parameters at higher altitudes. The Estes 1/34th scale Little Joe stands almost 18” tall and launches to 400’ on a C6-5 engine. Other features include a plastic Mercury capsule and engine nozzles, precision laser cut balsa and printed card-stock fins, high quality waterslide decals and a colorful 15” parachute for “safe reentry.”

    Great Kit

    This kit is challenging, yet straightforward to build. It uses the capsule from the classic Mercury Redstone kit. The Little Joe 1 is well designed and pieces fit together well. The paper skins for the fins eliminate the need for balsa filling, making finishing easier. This is a great addition to any scale model collection.
