Description

Advanced Skill
(Formerly Skill Level 2)

Harry Stine (NAR#02) is known as the “Father of Model Rocketry” and founder of the National Association of Rocketry. One of the original pioneers that founded the hobby right alongside Vern Estes, Stine was also a talented writer. This Estes Designer Signature Series kit is a faithful reproduction crafted by Estes designers from many sketches Stine created as well as the actual original model which is from the personal collection of Estes Vice President Bill Stine (who happens to be Harry’s son). Antar was not designed as a flying model rocket because in 1951 the hobby didn’t exist yet!  Stine was a physicist and clearly understood the science of flight, so even though Antar was a fictional vehicle, the science behind it meant it could be stable in flight.
