Super Mars Snooper Model Rocket Kit (Estes, 24mm)


Price: $37.99 each


The original Estes Mars Snooper was released in 1965 and was on the cover of the first ever, full color Estes catalogue in 1966. This new version for 2022 is an Expert build, as was the original. It’s large, like the original, and Estes made it even a little larger than the original. The model stands well over 2 feet tall, and it flies to 400 feet on a C11-3.
