This is an unassembled Swift flying rocket model in its original retail package. Made by Bo-Mar, the body, fins and nose are made of Kraftboard. A streamer and shrouds are cloth. There is no parachute or motor.
G. Harry Stine, a pioneer in the field of model rockets, donated this artifact to NASM in 1973.
Gift of G. Harry Stine
