    OK...I like the old rockets, this is my take on the 1955 Coaster Super-Son (Supersonic)? Center tube is a 20mm with centering rings holding on a cardstock skin. Nose cone is cardstock. In hind sight I wish I had gone thru the skin to attach fins and launch lug, I hope it doesn't leave the fins behind on launch. John

At the very apex of the flight of the rocket, a parachute ejects, opens and the rocket components come back to earth for refueling and refiring. Sonic speeds are possible with this rocket. It will thrill the most inveterate modelcraft enthusiast with the sight of the rocket zooming skyward at sonic speeds and at the very top of flight, seeing a parachute eject and open. The rocket may be re-charged and fired many times. (Coaster Original Brochure)
