The Celtic Thunder comes to us from the mind of Ray DiPaola of the NAR Sections CMASS and CATO!  The Celtic Thunder has the unique distinction of being the commemorative kit for the FlisKits 10th Anniversary!

Mind you, it is incredibly rare that we ever implement someone else's designs as a kit offered by FlisKits.  We have many designs just waiting for their chance in our catalog that we just can't be looking elsewhere for ideas.

The Celtic Thunder was different.  It is an elegant, handsome design that provides a very sharp and complex looking rocket that is incredible easy to build!

It is one of those rockets that has "Just that right look" that is so hard to find in designs these days.  It has a sort of

retro look to it and we expect it is going to become one of our signature kits!

The nested tube fin is patterned after the Celtic Knot, hence its name and will provide you with hours of fun building and painting and is sure to be the highlight of your fleet!

Special thanks to Ray DiPaola for his creativity as well as his permission to offer this wonderful design to the rocketry community!
