NASA SLS Model Rocket Kit (1:200 Scale, 18mm, Estes)


Price: $76.99 each


Taller than the Statue of Liberty and with more thrust than the Saturn V, the NASA SLS (Space Launch System) is ready to return humanity to the moon and beyond! Designed to make use of proven rocket technology and existing resources, the NASA SLS uses modified Space Shuttle main engines for its central core stage and Space Shuttle derived solid rockets for the outboard boosters. The NASA SLS Block1 will generate 8.8 million pounds of thrust at liftoff. That’s enough raw power to carry the Orion crew vehicle, an upper stage booster, and four astronauts all the way to lunar orbit and back.
SLS and Orion are key components of Project Artemis, the NASA program to land the first woman and the next man on the moon within the next five years. The NASA SLS is designed as a modular system of components, stages, and payloads so it can fulfill multiple roles in the course of Project Artemis. Subsequent Block 1B and Block 2 versions of the NASA SLS will launch landers and cargo to the moon and later to Mars.

The Estes 1:200 scale replica of this rocket portrays the Project Artemis Block 1 configuration, the first in the proposed series of heavy lift launch vehicles. Pre-assembled, pre-finished and ready to launch, this highly detailed model realistically reproduces the features and markings of America’s next generation rocket for deep space missions.

This ready-to-fly model comes with display stand and a clear plastic fin units for flight.
