Manufacturer: Excelsior Rocketry Style: Goonybird

The '57 Goony is unlike any of Excelsior Rocketry's other "Goony Retro-Bash" line of decal/plan sets in that it is not based on any of the Estes kits as the other offerings are. Instead this one gets its insperation from an automobile. Their ad says " The 57 GOONY is the rocket that says.. "Tailfins? I'll show you tailfins!".
Components required for this build are:
1- '57 Goony Plan/Decal set from Excelsior Rocketry, $7.00 plus shipping
1- Estes Baby Bertha kit from local Hobby Lobby, $9.95 plus tax
8- 1/8" launch lugs for the Headers (I made my own)
