Rocket, Flying Model, Super Star

     

This is a Model Products Super Star flying model rocket, assembled by model rocketry pioneer G. Harry Stine. The model has a pasteboard body, balsa fins and a plastic streamer. A solid propellant rocket motor propels the model, and then at the end of the vertical flight it forces the release of the streamer. The model is then retrieved and can be used again. Mr. Stine won first place with this model in the Class 1 parachute duration competition at the NARAM-13 rocket meet, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, in August 1971. This model was donated by Mr. Stine in 1973.
