For a minute I was hoping for a Pershing 1A but then I realized I was delusional. The Redstone is great though.

Hobby People has an ad running in moderately high rotation on cable. It includes the Estes Taser, which is perhaps their most accessable starter outfit. I wonder what would happen if the Mercury Redstone was pitched with some clever line as to the Mercury 7 as a static or flight model? It might increase the market size with some mission creep.

Hobby Lobby is next!

John,

The Mercury Redstone description says "laser cut fins". Does that mean no more plastic fin unit?
