The Kappa - 7 was designed as a booster for Japan's later Kappa - 8 and Kappa - 9 rockets as well as being used as a single - stage sounding rocket. It was determined, however, that the vehicle was unsuitable as a single - stage rocket. The lone Kappa - 7 flight was made on November 18, 1959 to confirm the motors suitability as a booster.
This Scale model of one of Japan's early sounding Rockets makes a great beginners kit! Basswood fins, balsa nose cone and included decal make this kit easy to build and finish. Capable of flying on a wide range of engines, this great looking (and flying!) model can be flown on practically any size field!
