Manufacturer: The Launch Pad Diameter: 2.6000 inches Style: Scale

This is a dual motor scale version of the French-built surface to surface anti-ship missile designed in 1967 and still in service today. This is a true modeler's kit that should only be attempted if you have previous building experience. There are lots of diagrams to reference but not the Estes type of "hold your hand through each step" instructions. Still, if you follow closely, you shouldn't have any problems.
The components are all of high-quality. I was hesitant to use the card stock nose cone extension configuration and substituted a Semroc BNC-80HVE nose cone in place. After seeing that a number of Launch Pad kits use this card stock nose cone extension I purchased all that Semroc had in stock after they announced shutting down in early 2014. It is an excellent substitute if you don't want to deal with the card stock extension configuration. The fins must be traced from patterns on to balsa sheets and cut by hand. No die-cut material here! I upgraded the rubber shock cord to an elastic one purchased from a local fabric store. I also substituted or will use a 24" nylon parachute in place oh the kits Mylar parachute.
