MK-5 Estes Bomarc Boost Glider - Level 4 Flying Model Rocket With Glide Recovery
Multimedia Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
From about 1970. Very rare model of the most advanced of the early Bomarc kits. Listed as a 'Scale Flying Rocket' and it is very close to scale. This is the deluxe 'Citation' issue with full decals, metal-like stickers, two B-2 engines and a plastic nose cone that has been factory painted a copper metallic. The kit is 23 inches long when built and functions as a boost-glider. Initially it rises like a regular rocket. When the ejection charge fires, the motor 'tube' ejects out the back and floats down by parachute. The Bomarc, with it's new center of gravity, enters into a glide back to the recovery area. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still internal factory bag sealed and all other parts have been inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.
