The FlisKits Honest John 1:61 represents a
first for FlisKits in that it is our first Scale Model. While not containing the
kind of detail that you would find in a larger version of this model, the
Micromaxx® Honest John
is still a model you can be proud to build and fly!
tiny representation of the famous Honest John missile features laser cut 1/16" thick
basswood fins. These laser cut fins also feature a precise etched line to
indicate the sanding line when feathering
the edges to match that of the
real missile. NOTE: This kit no longer includes decals.
Feedback from our customers indicated that the decals were
often not being used as the stock olive drab color of the
military version of this missile made it very difficult to
find after landing. As a result many were going with one
of the many test vehicle color schemes. And of course the die-hard scale modeler
is welcome to try their hand at carving scale spin motors to attach to the nose cone!
Original proto-type model
Further, the nose
cone, tiny as it is, is as close to true scale as we can make it, with the tail end of the
cone a true conic shape. Many version of the Honest John model have errored in this
respect, making the entire cone a curved profile.
Nice profile view
As small as she is, she still
performs incredibly well with Micromaxx® motors and
can easily soar to 100 feet and beyond on MMXII motors. In addition to the fins and
decals, the MTTM Honest John also features #16 Kevlar® shock line with a 1/2"
X 8" red and silver mylar streamer for safe recovery and ease of tracking.
