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!

This 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! transparent_25x10.gif (830 bytes)

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.

See how FlisKits has set new standards with reagard to the world of micromaxx!  Discover for yourself the quality and performance that these small models and motors can really display.   Forget everything you've heard about "plastic bricks" and poor performance.  Not with these beauties!  Ultra light weight, precision cut parts and the finest turned balsa nose cones in the industry, bar none!
