FlisKits 5th Anniversary
September 16th 2007
Riding the wave of
excitement caused by such announcements as the Borealis, US TOG and
others, the HERC-5 continues the tradition of exciting ships set in
a future of galactic exploration with the members of the United
Solar Planetary Federation and her growing allies such as the
Hobbicron Industrial Empire. Merging the best of technologies
from each government has lead to the first true recreational craft
solidifying the value of this galactic cooperation.
Fliskits invites you
to explore this fanciful universe and your own imagination with
this wonderful addition to our futuristic line of model rocket
kits. Featuring one of the most unique tube fin setups in
the industry, the HERC-5 also sports a full sheet of colorful
water slide decals, positive motor retention and recovery via a
colorful plastic parachute.
While offering unique
building challenges (you have to cut the body tubes for the twin
ram-jet style tube fins). Cutting tubes is not difficult,
but it is different. It is also a very valuable skill to
know. Once cut, the remainder of the HERC-5 assembly is a
snap and the final result will be the pride of your fleet!
Check out the figures
and images below to get a better feel for the unique nature of the
HERC-5 and prepare to fire your imagination as we warp into space
to enjoy the regions of the galaxy opened up with the help of the
U.S.S. Grissom and the Borealis!
