This is an unflown Model Products Corporation Minijet model rocket motor from 1970. It is made of pasteboard and contains non-explosive propellant. This was the second Minijet motor made by the manufacturer. A motor is used only once to power a model rocket. G. Harry Stine, a pioneer in the field of flying rocket models, donated it to NASM in 1973.
Gift of G. Harry Stine
