From the dawn of the space race comes Horizon's 1/72 Redstone Launcher kit. Trying to catch up to the Soviets after their Sputnik triumph, the USA used one of their most reliable rockets – the Redstone – added three more stages to make the Juno I, and mated it with the Explorer I satellite. When it was finally launched successfully  on January 31, 1958 from Cape Canaveral in Florida, a new era had begun for the United States. In the coming years, the Redstone rocket would prove to be a very reliable booster, and was used to launch satellites and the first American astronauts into space.

Horizon's sharply-detailed Redstone rocket with launch stand includes Parts and decals included to build any ONE of the following versions:
  •         Juno I with Explorer I, America’s first satellite, or
  •         US Army PGM-11 Redstone IRBM, or
  •         Sparta, or
  •         WRESAT missions

High quality water-slide decals printed by microscale, photo-etched steel parts and detailed instructions are also included.
