The U.S.S. Grissom is the pride of the FlisKits fleet of model rockets! At 30.6” tall, it is the tallest mini-engine powered bird in our fleet, but that’s only the start. Unlike other models that have employed ducted ejection gasses, the U.S.S. Grissom has the narrowest profile of them all, giving it one of the most graceful appearances in model rocketry today. The inclusion of solar panels and it’s impressive length to diameter ratio makes this one of the most stable model rockets you’ll ever fly. Add to that a highly detailed set of water slide decals and you have a model that will stand out from all the rest!

The U.S.S. Grissom is a complex model to construct, but is not beyond even a novice modeler, as the assembly instructions allow for simplified construction, such as ellimination of the solar panels, reducing it’s skill level to 3.

The U.S.S. Grissom is the pride of the United Solar Planetary Federation fleet of Luxury Liners. Intended for deep space and inter-stellar voyages, it provides accommodations for over 500 passengers and 57 crew, to all parts of the explored galaxy. Recreational activities include zero-G sports such as football, Soccer and glide aerobics; Low-G sports such as swimming and bowling; not to mention fine dining, live theater, meditation chambers and arcades!

This scale model of the U.S.S. Grissom features ducted ejection for parachute deployment, single engine reliability, detailed waterslide decal sheet and fully detailed solar panels and engine area.

The U.S.S. Grissom produces slow, realistic take offs, magnificent flights and parachute recovery for soft gentle landings to assure many safe and exiting flights!

Keep watch for other exciting additions to the United Solar Planetary Federation fleet of model rockets!
