This is an Estes Mean Machine Skill Level 2 Model Rocket Kit. The Mean Machine standing almost 80 inches tall is one TALL rocket and to make transport to the launch field easier, the clever rocket designers developed a unique twist lock connector set that allows you to take your rocket apart right in the middle! Perfect for fitting this almost 7" rocket in your car!
This legendary rocket is a Skill Level 2 kit and has been one of Estes' highly requested bring backs and you've got it now! We've just updated the decor and think you will love it as much as we do!
