It is the 1950’s, the Cold War is raging and the Red Scare is in full force. Commies are infiltrating the very fabric of our society while McCarthy is pointing the finger at everyone. Cars are lumpy and growing fins, the Martians are invading, and aliens (pick a species) in bad costumes are nabbing pretty actresses from movie sets across the world. The Pod-people are in town, strange and unforgivable spacecraft are falling from the sky, and women aren’t allowed out of the kitchen. In the meantime, George Pal and Rodger Corman are cranking out movies faster than you can say “Monster from what?” DDT is being served as a refreshing pick-me- up drink and giant planets/asteroids/comets/stars/three-headed lava frogs are bearing down on the Earth from space. The world is doomed (again) and mankind’s only hope is to load up into their sleek silver Space Ark and blast off into the perceived safety of outer space. Don’t you wish life were so simple again?
Kit comes complete with premium 1.6″ balsa nose and tail cones, 1.6″ body tube, Heavy Duty 24mm motor mount tube, 1/8″ balsa stock for wings and fins (Fins have Through The Tail Cone Mounting), more fin patterns that you have ever wanted to see, 16″ chute, KEVLAR shock cord,, nose ballast, 1/8″ launch lug, 1/8″ dowels for those retro fin tip pods and our infamous Destruction manual.
