Default What rocket is this?

Does anyone recognize this rocket. It looks like it has five fins. It was launched at the funeral scene in the movie “serenity”

Looks like it could be based off of the old Estes Arrow #1983.

Kinda hard to judge size. Looks a little like one of Korey Kline’s Ace kits, forget the name of it though.

That was from the closing scene of the movie Serenity as they paid tribute to the death of their pilot, Wash. Not sure if it was any particular model. IIRC, it came with "report".

Which begs the question... How do Revers clean their harpoons? They run them through the Wash.

Launching is Optional... Landing? That Depends on Trees.
