|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!
