    This is a modification of the Estes Patriot kit into a semi-scale model of the Little John tactical nuclear missile The motor mount was built and installed in the shortened body tube as per the instructions (LJ01).

    The Yellow Jacket is a two-stage rocket constructed solely from the parts of two Estes 1:10 scale Patriot kits. The rocket uses direct coupling of the motors with an engine block above and below the motors to aid in pulling the lower stage off cleanly as described in "The Handbook of Model Rocketry".
