    So many memories

    The ASM was one of my favorites as a kid and I was ecstatic to see that Estes had re-released it. The styling of the rocket inspires the imagination so much more than just a few fins on a tube. Granted, sanding and sealing 12 balsa fins and one balsa nose cone is time consuming, but it’s part of the craft. This rocket flies great too. The mini-engines make sure it doesn’t leave the county and the streamer recovery means it doesn’t drift too far either. A GREAT kit.

    this is a neat rocket-nice display, good flyer!

    Had one of these in my fleet for a while. Don’t remember what happened to it, but do recall that it was a good looking rocket that flew pretty consistently. Nice to see this as a re-issue. Price is pretty reasonable too!
