Expert Skill

A long-time hobbyist’s dream build, this high flying booster model rocket kit is what Estes model rocketry is all about. Based off of a Russian military spaceship, the Sasha is a scale-like model that would be a spectacular addition to any hobby rocket collection.

Durable and rugged this bad boy has two stages to lift the 6.1 ounce rocket into ‘outer space’. Powered by two D or E engines, the Sasha can soar to 2300 feet high. An 18 inch parachute will safely return the main rocket down to earth as the booster tumbles gently down to the ground. Once grounded, this 31-inch tall rocket will command respect when on display in any hobbyist’s collection.

WHAT YOU NEED TO BUILD: Scissors, pencil, ruler, sandpaper, carpenters glue, hobby knife, masking tape, primer (white), paint (red, gray, olive-drab), clear coat (optional), plastic cement, clear tape. Tools, construction and finishing supplies not included.

WHAT YOU NEED TO LAUNCH (sold separately): Estes Porta-Pad II launch pad with E Launch Controller, Estes model rocket engines, recovery wadding and four 1.5V high-quality AA alkaline batteries (not included).

  1. Ernie building Rockets since the 1970’s

    Fun Build…a lot of parts for building, but nothing too difficult. If you enjoy building, this will be a fun project. I haven’t launched it yet, as I need some extra room for a safe recovery. I used 30 min Z-Poxy for the construction adhesive. Z-Poxy Finishing Resin mixed with Micro Balloons to fill the tube spirals and balsa grain on the fins. Spread on thinly, it does a great job getting ready for sandable primer.

  2. John Eric Thompson

    This a great looking rocket. It will impress those seeing it go up as a two stage or sngle stage rocket.
