Default FlisKits: Goddard Series: Nell & L-13

FlisKits is proud to announce our two newest kits NOW AVAILABLE!

Both are scale kits and both are commemorative kits of the 2010 national convention (NARCON)!

These two kits make up the Robert H Goddard Historic Series and include:
  • Nell - A 1:2.5 sport scale of Goddard's first liquid fueled rocket! Never before offered in kit form, the Nell is the most significant rocket to have ever flown! Standing over 50" tall and powered by 18mm motors, this is a must have for any serious scale or history buff!
  • L-13 - A 1:5.5 sport scale model of Goddard's highest flying rocket, launched in 1937. This BT-60 based, 18mm model is a simple build and a simply beautiful model of this very historic vehicle.

Both kits are now released and available for purchase on our site. Shipments will begin mid-week next week, after we return form NARCON.

Weather permitting, a specialty built Nell kit will be flown on the VERY SAME spot that Goddard flew the original, Sunday afternoon, right after the conclusion of NARCON. This model, along with an L-13 model, will be donated to Clark University for inclusion in the Goddard Exhibit.

FlisKits is proud to be able to bring this caliber of rocketry to the community and we look forward to serving you well into the future!

I just got the new FlisKits catalog in the mail yesterday. (Thanks, Jim!) Boy, I haven't been keeping close enough watch as to what all the model rocketry companies are putting out. FlisKits has some fantastic designs in their lineup!

I've been waiting for these. I placed my order the minute I saw this.

Back in the 60's, the first time I was into model rockets, I enjoyed reading about Robert Goddard and I still have a book about him from that time. I think he was the main reason I did get into model rockets.

Response to this release has been very positive. I can't wait for the launch on Sunday where we will be flying Nell on the very same spot that Goddard did 84 years ago!

Jim,

Any chance somebody can video the flight and post it to You Tube?

I'd love to see it.

Steve

Assuming it actually takes place, i'm sure we can do that. Right now we're looking at 100% chance of rain and winds to 24mph with gusts to 34mph....

I'm in the process of building the Nell. Does anyone have the plans for the scale launcher?
