The two rocket designs that I just love are the Goblin and Red Max. I have built several Red Max versions but I wanted one in a big boy format. Since the only kits available are astronomically expensive on Ebay, I decided to scratch-build this one. Here's a list of the parts and where I got them:

  • Nose Cone - Estes
  • Body Tube - Estes
  • Fin/CR kit (38mm MMT version)- Rocketry Works
  • Shock Cord - 1/2" Nylon webbing from Amazon
  • Eye Hook 3/8" - Lowes
  • Motor Retainer and Cap - 3D Printed
