008 Shuttle Express

This is another of the Estes E2x Series of model rockets. It is a very easy model to build and looks great when finished The body tubes come prefinished with decals that cover the entire body tube. You cannot see any lines from the tube. The shuttles look pretty tough and should fly well.

This rockets performs just like any other except it "tows" the shuttles with little hooks. When the rocket reaches apogee the inertia of the shuttles releases them from the rocket body. This rocket might have been a cinch to build but it is indicative of why I am a "born again rocketeer", it's fun!
