WAC Corporal Model Rocket Kit (MicroMaxx Version)


Price: $8.95 each


The Wac Corporal was the United States first sounding rocket. Seventeen Wac and Wac B rockets were flown from 1945 to 1947. The Wac was launched with the aid of the Tiny Tim solid propellant booster. After the booster burned out, it fell away and the liquid fuel propelled sustainer stage continued its' upward flight.

Although it looks like a two-stage kit, this model is cleverly designed to fly on a single Micro motor.

This Micro kit is designed to use the Quest™ Micro Maxx™ engines and is based on our "Minimum Diameter" T-MM body tubes. Includes Kevlar® shock cord, metallized polyester streamer, water-slide decal and our usual complete instructions. Due to the small parts involved, these kits are not recommended for the first-time modeler. Younger modelers should have the assistance of an adult when trying to construct these small kits.
