The MAKO model rocket kit is a Faux-Scale of an Air-to-Air missile that features water slide decals and 24mm power.

Sporting a unique look, the MAKO offers some new building techniques (those fin scoops (ram scoops?) don't construct themselves...) and challenges but is not that complex a build.  The result is a very sharp looking model that wouldn't cause a second glance hanging beneath the wing of a fighter jet.

24mm power gives you a wide range of motor choices from C to E power so that this model is perfect for small fields and can make the most out of larger fields too.

During construction you will have to form and attach the two-part fin scoops (4 of them) as well

as cutting out your own fins (simple trapezoids) and forming a paper shroud.

The beauty of Faux-Scale is that you are free to embellish this model to any extent you desire!  Let your imagination run wild with color scheme, decal placement and surface details (doo-dads and such).  It isn't "scale", so you can't be "wrong".  How cool is that!?

Let the MAKO reign supreme in your fleet today!

Below is a small photo album showing some pictures of the proto type build and flights.
