This was one of the last rockets produced by Centuri. It is a fantasy scale of the the "fighter" used in the Buck Rogers in the 25th Century television show. It has an interesting appearance and the "mods/additions" included to make the rocket stable seem less intrusive, at least to me, than in some others. The rocket is new and unopened. It has an 18m motor mount and recovers by parachute. Centuri called it a skill level 3. Needless to say, it is OOP by plenty of decades.

I am asking $45.00


This kit is offered for sale in an effort to liquidate my collection of kits and is being offered via cross postings on The Rocketry Forum and Ye Olde Rocket Forum. The price indicated is what I have determined by looking for evidence of similar sales but, admittedly, might reflect a poor judgement on my part. I'm just doing the best that I can. The price does NOT include shipping. Interested persons are invited to contact me via PM and I will calculate the shipping. Payment is expected by means of Zelle or Venmo. I am willing to do some, but not a lot, of experimentation with PayPal but be advised that my patience with that platform is not particularly notable. My intention is to make shipments twice per week after confirming receipt of funds. I will try to give the most accurate descriptions I am able to provide and will happily answer any specific questions either by PM or within the post thread.

Congrats on the sale. This kit features a unique rear-eject pod, different than the later derivative Estes version. It really looks cool coming down on the chute, just pack it very loosely, I learned that from experience, with a chute that did not unfurl and it made a double cone lawn dart landing. One of my favorite kits, along with the Draconian Marauder. I had these on display on shroud lines on hooks from the ceiling suspended in a perpetual dogfight with each other in my room when I was a kid.

FWIW, I know I have a Draconian Marauder some place. I just have no idea which box it is in. I'm working my way through boxes to clear out a room. I'm 2 rockets into the 2nd box and there are at least 35 is plain site; more that are hidden by boxes and furniture.
